Review of My First Signs

When babies cry, you don’t always know what they want – but they may be able to tell you. Babies can coordinate their hand muscles long before they can speak and, if they learn simple signs, they’re able to convey their needs from as early as eight months. It’s a system called 'baby signing', and it’s been popular in the US for years.

It can also help your child to speak earlier and use a larger vocabulary. And as it’s based on British Sign Language, you’re learning a lifelong skill. Parents and babies can learn at classes (visit www.totstalkinghands.co.uk) or through books such as 'My First Signs', £4.99, a dictionary of simple words, and 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star', one of four Sign & Sing-Along books by Annie Kubler.
