The bestselling parenting guide featured on "Oprah" and "Dateline" is revised and updated with new signs
For every parent or caregiver who has struggled unsuccessfully to decode baby grunts and grabs, resulting in tearful frustration for both adult and child, there is Baby Signs. Based on 20 years of research, this one-of-a-kind classic shows you how to encourage your baby's use of nonverbal gestures to enhance communication. Simple hand movements signify objects, events, and needs, so your infant can enjoy interactions with you that otherwise would have been impossible until they could talk. New features of this revised edition include helpful tips on incorporating Baby Signs into the day care setting and more than 50 additional illustrated Baby Signs.

Linda Acredolo, Ph.D., and Susan Goodwyn, Ph.D., both psychology professors, conducted their pioneering scientific research on the language and cognitive benefits of Baby Signing for the National Institutes of Health. They have shared their award-winning findings through national media, including appearances on "Dateline" and "Oprah." Dr. Acredolo is at the University of California, Davis. Dr. Goodwyn teaches at California State University, Stanislaus.From Library Journal:
After studying baby sign language with a grant from the National Institutes of Health, Acredelo (psychology, Univ. of California, Davis) and Goldwyn (psychology, California State Univ., Stanislaus) conclude that babies who are taught to use signs to express basic ideas (e.g., fingers to the lips for eat, fingers raised in a V for bunny) before they can say the words are both happier because they can communicate with others and more adept at speaking once they begin to acquire language. This is not a scholarly exegesis of their findings but a practical, easy-to-use guide to teaching baby signs. The authors begin with an explanation of their findings and then offer a portfolio of suggested signs in which simple pictures are accompanied by description, memory aid, and suggested situations for use. The book has an upbeat, encouraging tone that parents will appreciate. Interestingly, Parenting magazine cited the authors' study in the "News and Reviews" section of the May 1996 issue?but failed to mention this book! For all parenting collections.?Barbara Hoffert, "Library Journal"
