Signing babies are taking over, asking for more milk and later nap times. Sure, they might not get their way, but signing gives them a way to express themselves. Frustrated communication is often the root cause of crying and tantrums in babies and toddlers. Usually it is caused by the lag between a child's desire to be understood and their ability to form words. Sign language bridges this gap.The Everything Baby Sign Language Book teaches parent and children to use a combination of sign language and homemade gestures to communicate needs, wants and feelings. Using this book and instructional DVD, baby and parent will be well on their way to using their hands to speak! Please note: DVD is not included with the e-book version of this title
