Description


A revolutionary parenting tool to help support your child’s communication skills from the start!

Babies have a lot to say! My First Baby Signs introduces ten of the most popular signs and provides parents a place to begin talking with their child before their baby can speak up first.

Pat your head to say HAT.

Wave your hand to say BYE BYE.

Baby signs are simple gestures that allow infants and toddlers to say what they need, what they see, and even what they feel long before their vocal chords are developed enough to let them use actual words. This book includes the most popular signs and provides parents a place to begin "talking" with their little one from the very beginning.
