This book is very specific in showing you a clear black and white pic of a child doing each sign, then goes into detail to the side of each pic of exact hand shape, body space (sign produced in), movement (of body/hand/arm) and a memory aid (to help you visualize what the sign is mimicking so you can remember the signs). There's also space provided to record the date you introduced the sign and the date your child produced the sign.
It is organized into age-appropriate sections for parents - starting out signing to your infant (0-6 months), hints on when to start things such as 2-word phrases in ASL, to expanding as your child gets older - grouped into 6 month intervals all the way up to 3 yrs! Also includes tips on how to continue through life in ASL!
The last part of the book is songs to sing & sign with! There are 36 songs - each with well-known tunes! I had been singing some of these, but I will be signing along with them now!!
It's just amazing for us to watch our 3-spoken-word toddler produce signs that we can understand!Read more ›
The back of the book contains a descriptive and easy-to-read dictionary of many useful signs, and so far I have found all the signs I need that are related to my baby's main interests (sleeping, pooping, eating, bathing, playing, and much more).
I highly recommend this as a baby signing resource to all parents!
This book is a clear, straight-forward and concise book about moving your child forward in language and communication. It is very user-friendly, easy to digest, and easy to follow the suggestions. The sign language dictionary is also clear and easy to follow from the first day that you use it.
Sara Bingham is a talented professional who has captured the most important milestones and critical information about language and communication development in little ones and allowed both professionals and parents to see inside the minds of our little treasures. Even though I have studied these areas for many years, I found it elucidating and helpful.

Loved doing the signs with the babies but they soon grew up. We still use some today even 7 years later!Published on May 9 2014 by farmgirl
Would have been better to be used like a dictionary and separated by levels to which the baby is able to sign back.Published on April 25 2013 by WZ
