“Here it is! A book to help your baby enjoy learning language. You will be surprised at how well your baby reacts to the opportunity to communicate with you through signing. The authors’ vast knowledge of signing contributes to the user friendliness of this book.”  —Robert M. Wilson, EdD, professor emeritus, University of Maryland and author, Come Sign with Us

More About the Author

Ken Frawley is a nationally known performer, songwriter of music for children, author, and professional trick roper. His career has been based on providing fun, entertaining, and educational material and programs to children while providing parents, teachers, and early childhood professional's skills so they can use music, movement, and American Sign Language, ASL, effectively with children.
He has performed thousands shows and concerts for children's and family audiences in schools, libraries, preschools, and at various city and community events throughout Southern California and across the country. He is the current president of Dream Shapers, a non-profit, that promotes performers, hosts showcases, and generates over 5,000 shows annually for children's and family performers.
He and his wife, Georgia, lecture across the U. S. on how to use American Sign Language, ASL, with children (babies through elementary) to provide for early communication, learning, language enhancement and fun. They began using sign language for communication and learning over 30 years ago with their own children and later combined ASL with music for their concerts. They then co-produced the We Sign DVD series, receiving over 50 national awards, and co-authored the Mom's Choice award winning Sign to Speak: Babies Can Talk and Sign to Speak: Toddlers at Play books.
With his music background, writer of over 200 children's songs, and over 40 years of performing with children, he co-authored the Play-Along Songs music books/CD/Online video demonstration collections and lectures on activity songs for fun and learning. But, learning a song at a workshop only lasts for a little while. The result has been this holistic approach to children's music of written word, photographs, sheet music, CD recordings, and online video demonstrations available all year round that make it easy for anyone to be successful with interactive children's songs.

Format: Paperback
I bought this a while ago at a book convention. It is very educational and it has really good sign language tips to teach toddlers. This helped with communication with our kids way earlier than I thought.
