"'Nurseries in Britain are about to be swept by the new craze of baby signing' The Observer, Sunday 2 March 2003; 'The practice is becoming popular among parents in America. In some states, such as Florida, it is commonplace. Now it has come to Britain, with classes and seminars being held to teach the technique. Informal mothers' groups are meeting weekly to spread the message and practice the gestures...' The Observer, Sunday 2 March 2003"
Monta Briant, a native of San Francisco, and her husband, Paul, of Cape Town, South Africa, began signing with their daughter, Sirena, when she was six months old. The family eventually learned hundreds of signs together. Monta was so moved by the ability to communicate effectively with her then preverbal daughter that she found herself telling anyone pushing a stroller about baby sign language. In 2001, Monta, a former professional yacht captain, decided to make a permanent career change that would enable her to stay home with her daughter, so she founded Baby Sign Language Workshops. An enthusiastic speaker and self-proclaimed 'baby sign language evangelist,' Monta teaches baby sign language workshops and parent-tot signing classes throughout San Diego County. Baby Sign Language Workshops classes have been the subject of feature stories in the ' San Diego Union-Tribune' and on Fox 6 News. This is her first book.
