Signing Hands; Baby Signing Basics

Having never signed before (well I picked a few up from something special when Boo was little – the only one that stuck with me is Boat!) I am finding this book really easy to understand and follow – it makes it very clear how it should be done. It is beautifully illustrated and a pleasure to read – my little girl Boo who is 4 loves to go through it with me doing the signs and loves the illustrations! 
I started to use the sign for milk every time it was feed time for my baby Bugs who is now 9 months old and within a week or so he seemed to understand what it meant and got very very excited! I am now starting to introduce other signs such as Mummy, Eat, Cuddle, Bed, oh and of course Daddy – I don’t want to use this too much because I want to make sure he signs Mummy first 😉
I love that the book has signing songs in too as Bugs loves it when we sing and dance and of course Boo is really enjoying learning them too! 
Over all this book gets a big thumbs up from us. It covers lots of useful everyday words! A great starting place for someone wanting to start signing with their baby.
