9781563681158: More Baby's First Signs

Every parent knows the frustration of trying to satisfy the demands of an infant too young to communicate his or her thoughts. Now, a growing consensus of researchers agree that not only deaf children but also hearing children can benefit from early exposure to sign language, often learning such basic signs as “milk,” “mother,” and “change” as early as seven months. With this knowledge in mind, Kim Votry and Curt Waller have written and illustrated Baby’s First Signs and More Baby’s First Signs, two books designed to provide your infant with the means to articulate his or her fundamental desires.

Baby’s First Signs and More Baby’s First Signs are durable board books, lavishly colored in bright reds, blues, greens, and yellows sure to please your child’s eye. Each page features an illustration of a toddler signing a word as well as demonstrating what the sign is about. For example, on the “baby” page, the toddler makes the sign for “baby” by mimicking the cradling of a child in his arms while also smiling at his baby sister sitting beside him. The illustrations include both a diagram box that depicts exactly how to perform the sign and the English word in the top left corner, so that your child will learn English and sign language simultaneously. The books cover fundamental expressions such as “sleep,” “cold,” “eat,” and “hurt” as well as “rain,” “mommy,” “daddy,” and “car.”

“Signing is a beautifully tactile way for babies to learn about their world,” the authors write. “It acknowledges a baby’s natural abilities and provides a powerful tool for self-expression.” The Baby’s First Signs books are the ideal place to begin building your baby’s library.

About the Author:

Kim Votry teaches parents and educators how to use American Sign Language with hearing children in Edmonds, WA.

Curt Waller does freelance painting and digital illustration in Seattle, WA.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-In both titles, a brown-skinned toddler signs elementary words such as "ball," "sleep," "hot," and "rain" in American Sign Language (ASL). A small box with a clear pencil illustration of the directions for signing the word appears in the corner of each larger picture of the child interacting with Dad and Mom. The bright, simple illustrations outlined in black will be appealing to preschoolers. The note on the back of the books points out, "-a growing number of researchers agree that not only deaf children but also hearing children can benefit from early exposure to sign language, often learning basic signs as early as nine months old, before they learn spoken words."-Olga R. Kuharets, Broward County Libraries, Fort Lauderdale, FL
