Here's what people are saying ....
Everything You Need to Know Neatly in One Place
“I really enjoyed signing with my first baby very early on. When she was just four months old we started with the basics, and by around seven months she was signing back to me. Baby sign language made it so much easier to communicate with my daughter before she started speaking verbally, especially around meal time, and I really got to know my daughter’s likes and dislikes, interests and ideas. Signs of a Happy Baby places everything you need to know about signing with your baby neatly in one place, including great tips, a comprehensive photo dictionary of signs, and lots of ideas on how to include baby sign language into your everyday routines. It’s a great resource to have on hand and I’m looking forward to using it with my next child as well!”
Leah Busque, Executive Chairwoman and Founder, TaskRabbit
Magic, for Real
“Baby sign language is, as my five-year-old would say, ‘magic, for real.’ Not only is it the ultimate tantrum-tamer – via being able to communicate needs and wants prior to verbal ability catching up – it is also a tool for mindful, gentle discipline: less frustrated toddlers lead to less frustrated parents. It helps little ones share their fears and hurts, as well as what excites them, long before they can speak verbally. Harper and White have written an inspirational and helpful resource for parents to help them learn how to foster early communication with their children through baby sign language.”
Sabrina Freidenfelds, MPH, IBCLC, Founder of Then Comes Baby, a pregnancy and new parent resource center, Oakland, California
The Paramount Educator in his Field
“Baby Sign Language is an instrumental tool in empowering babies and young children to communicate and express their needs and thoughts while they are pre-verbal and developing spoken language. Bill White is the paramount educator in his field and has brought a deeper bonds, more attuned parenting, and FUN to countless families, including mine. We are forever grateful for his work both personally and within our community.”
