9780091851682: Baby Signs (Positive Parenting)

Have you noticed how easily babies learn to wave 'bye-bye', shake their heads for no and nod for yes? These are the most simple forms of Baby Signs which enable babies to communicate effectively before they are able to say the word. Unfortunately most parents never realise their baby's potential for learning other gestures that make it possible for parents to interact with their child in ways that would otherwise have been impossible until thier baby could talk. The authors have spent more than a decade researching and studying the effects of Baby Signs on infant communication and the results have been overwhelming. Not only do parents gain a much greater understanding of their children and their needs but babies develop skills that enrich their comprehension of language. In BABY SIGNS, the author provide parents with a fun and simple programme for teaching children Baby Signs at home. It includes easy to follow illustrated signs and photographs as well as popular nursery rhymes and stories with signs, allowing infants to reach out and forge bonds of affection and satisfaction that will last a lifetime.

About the Author:

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"
