The first 10 signs
Get off on the right foot with the top 10 starter signs, chosen for how easy they are to learn and how often most babies will use them: milk, eat, more, all done, bed, dog, light, ball, book, and car.
Enough range for babies and toddlers
It’s never too early to start signing—even with a newborn! This book covers signs for 0-6 months, when your baby will just be absorbing information, 6-12 months, when they’ll likely start signing back, and to 24 months and beyond when they can combine signs with speech.
Tips and tricks for success
Find guidance on teaching signs in a way babies can understand, the best times to use them, how to identify when your baby is trying to sign back to you, and tricks for remembering what different signs mean.

This is the book I wish I'd had when my children were infants. When my first child was born, I was vaguely aware that signing with my baby would be beneficial, and somewhere I picked up a few signs: MILK, MORE, and EAT. My baby took to these signs right away, and they became valuable communication tools for us. I considered teaching my child more signs, but when I glanced at baby sign books in the library, they looked overwhelming and daunting for my sleep-deprived, new-motherhood-addled mind. My child ended up speaking early and well, but I can't help wondering what I missed out on before speech emerged. What would he have communicated to me had I introduced more signs to him? I talked to my baby all the time, but how would he have responded if he'd had the tools to communicate back to me?
I'm sure that if someone had handed me this book at that time, I would have glanced through it and been drawn in by its clear illustrations and accessible format. I would have jumped right to the chapter on the first 10 signs and introduced my child to several useful and then playful signs, and even my fatigued brain would have been able to utilize the author's concise memory tips to recall each sign. After meeting with success with these signs, I would have gone on to introduce mealtime signs, changing and getting dressed signs, bath and bedtime signs, and animal signs. I would have loved to use the author's suggestions for incorporating signing into books that we happened to already own and songs that we were already singing. During my more lucid moments of my child's first year, I would have gone back to read the author's introduction and explanation of baby signs, and I would have felt even better about making the decision to incorporate signs into our daily life.
This book is written with such loving awareness of infant development. With its anecdotes about the author's own signing experiences with her children, it feels as though a friend is patiently guiding the reader along. No wonder my 10-year-old and I were instantly taken with the book! What we missed 10 years ago, we can now understand together.
