From the best selling book, Teach Your Baby to Sign by Monica Beyer, enjoy a card deck that makes teaching your baby to sign easy!
You can hear--your baby can hear--so what's the deal? Every parent knows how frustrated babies become when they can't make themselves clear to their families. But now, before they can talk, they can tell you what they mean--with signs!
Signing has taken the parenting world by storm, but why has it? Every parent is eager to give their baby the best possible upbringing, the least frustration, and the best head start for achieving in today's competitive society. Research (funded by the National Institutes of Health) has found that signing babies: talk sooner and have larger vocabularies; have stronger parent/child bonds; have less frustration, crying and tantrums; show more interest in books; engage in more sophisticated play; and have higher IQ scores. Now, what parent doesn't want that?
Carry this card deck anywhere and you can have a wide selection to choose from, along with stage-by-stage guidance so they'll know which signs to teach first and which to add as they and their baby become progressively more skilled and comfortable with signing.
