ASIN: B0007Z9QYE DESCRIPTION: A playful introduction to words and sign language!
-- Introduces little ones to words and sign language
-- Taps in to little ones' natural curiosity

As their communication skills continue to develop, little ones begin to recognize common words and may point to objects or pictures when these items are named. Baby Wordsworth playfully taps into your little one's natural curiosity and introduces 30 words from around the home -- both spoken and in sign language. This engaging program presents little ones with familiar objects in the kitchen, playroom, yard and more -- from the living room window to their favorite teddy bear.

Join special guest Marlee Matlin as she demonstrates the concept of nonverbal communication. Also featuring a delightful blend of real-world images, adorable puppet shows and beautiful classical music, Baby Wordsworth is an interactive guide to an exciting world of fun and discovery that you and your child can share -- right under your very own roof!

This DVD was very disappointing. My 19 month old son loves the entire collection of Baby Einstein, but this one does not hold his attention. The content is very poor and not suitable for teaching beginning sign language to babies. Many of the signs demonstrated on Baby Wordsworth are too complicated for an infant to learn.

We have My Baby Can Talk, which is formatted very much like the other Baby Einstein DVDs. My son loves that one and has learned practically all the signs on it. We're waiting for the second volume to come out and were hoping that the Baby Wordsworth would be a nice complement to it (not the case!). We also have the first few Volumes of Signing Time. My son has learned those signs as well, but he likes the imagery on My Baby Can Talk better whereas Signing Time shows a lot more children actually demonstrating the signs. Hope this review helps.

As a counselor for families with young babies, I have had the opportunity to review a number of sign language resources for preverbal babies.

This DVD seems more appropriate for older children rather than preverbal babies who are trying to communicate basic wants and needs. Some of the most important first words and signs for young babies are not offered - eat, drink, milk, more, etc. Instead this DVD offers words and signs such as computer, puzzle, clock, etc.

In addition, there are no babies signing or speaking in this production and it lacks an appropriate tutorial for parents of hearing babies who are teaching their babies to use sign language.

I recommend the My Baby Can Talk series to teach either sign language or first spoken words to babies.

My son just loves the Baby Einstein series -- some of them more than others, but he has NEVER lost interest after only 5 minutes as he did with this one. I have only watched the first 10 minutes of this, so my review cannot possibly be comprehensive. But...well...I thought it was boring too and I'm used to being completely charmed & visually stimulated myself by the BE videos.

Baby Wordsworth starts with an introduction to the objects in your "house" (assuming we all have one that looks like your standard Colonial) and then proceeds to introduce the objectsat (for BE) a rapid-fire pace with no real exploration of their meaning or use. Some kids might like this, but I think my son's reaction was -- like -- "What's with this stuff? This is the same stuff I see every day." Then there's this footage of familes doing "normal" things in their "house." It's like watching a series of glossy, well-produced television commercials ("Shall we go to the refrigerator and get a treat, honey?" "Let's make a cake!"). I'm not a cynic about home-based activities, but feel that, since we pretty much live them (albeit in a far less fabulous kitchen) it takes a little bit more effort to make this sort of thing stimulating in video form.

My advice is don't waste your money. Also, I purchased the VHS and the sound quality is appalling. This video is being returned tomorrow.

If your baby loves logo art and constant branding influences than this is the video for you. After many several minutes of Baby Einstein branding logos and promos - you FINALLY get to the ACTUAL content of the video (however, not before even more logos and branding). And don't think you can just skip past this. They've inserted more corporate fluff into the content portion. If you're like us, you will be so annoyed by the video the first time watching it that you will never watch it again. My husband and I actually threw it away because we didn't feel good about GIVING it away! The little bit of content we did see was not very interesting and certainly not worth the wait. Better choice our opinion would be the Classical Baby series.

I am a lover of ALL things Einstein, and a speech therapist so I was excited when I got this dvd. Unfortunately the pace is so slow, and they only show the sign for each item two times about five minutes apart. It is not nearly enough for a small child or a child with delays to pick up. I can barely watch it, and its the ONLY ONE my 11 month old doesn't watch, and I think we have 6 dvds.

I am a HUGE fan of Baby Einstein. My son loves them all. He is 2 and a half, and still watches them. I love them also, because they are so nice on the ears. I can't STAND the background noise of most kids shows. Especially over and over and over!! But Baby Einstein is pleasant and nice to watch. BUT Baby Wordsworth is stupid and not worth 1.00 at a garage sale. We have not even made it through the whole thing one single time. My son won't sit still for even 5 minutes of it. Save your money. If you want something to help you with vocabulary, we LOVE Baby Babble. It's a must! My son learned several words from it.

I like Marlee Matlin and some of the other DVDs in the Baby Einstein series so was looking forward to this one. It is unfortunately not that great for teaching sign language (I prefer both "My Baby Can Talk" and "Signing Time"). The worst part of it is how long a child has to wait for the actual content; there is no way to skip the COMMERCIAL for "Disney's Little Einsteins"!
