Sign Language for Babies and Toddlers by Christopher Brown
Helping infants and toddlers to find ways of expressing themselves early in life is an important part of actual language development. By using signs and other gestures many parents have found that their young children become less frustrated during the long process of learning to use spoken words. This is a very reader-friendly and practical guide to learning sign language basics that can be used with very young children. The illustrations are simple to follow and the written directions are clear and straightforward. If you were to learn the entire vocabulary offered in the book you would know the ASL alphabet, numbers, nursery rhymes, a large single word vocabulary, and a range of simple two word combinations. An excellent resource for anyone wanting to learn sign language basics.
