Now, in this newly expanded edition, Monta Z. Bryant provides more than 300 American Sign Language (ASL) signs, illustrated with the same clear, easy-to-understand photos and descriptions. Baby-specific signing techniques, songs, and games are also included to make learning fun and to quickly open up two-way communication. Parents will meet real signing families and learn how to make sign language a part of their everyday interactions with their children. Also included is a video featuring all the signs from the book. See the sign you want to learn come alive! This is a must-have for all parents, grandparents, and anyone else who spends time with preverbal children. After all, what parent or caregiver doesn't want to know what their baby is trying to tell them?" -- From publisher's description.
