In enchanting drawings by illustrator Michael Carter, a toddler signs 14 words in ASL (American Sign Language) that first appear in a child's vocabulary: airplane, baby, bath, bed, dad, help, hot, hurt, mom, more, please, thank you, tired, and toilet. The signs in ASL Babies- First Signs are modeled on those used by fluent deaf signers.
This baby signing book includes 14 adorably illustrated images that allow early communication between parents/caregivers and babies. Research shows that signing reduces frustration, increases IQ, and leads to larger vocabularies at earlier ages. Signing is easy, fun, and rewarding— and babies love it!
