I started doing these signs when my son was about 4 1/2 months old. Most commonly 'milk'. He is now 6 1/2 months and already giggles and gets VERY excited when I make the sign to him, he knows whats coming! :)
I look forward to him being able to sign back to me one day!
We have now mastered all 14 of these signs and use them every day and have now moved on to the next books!
Contrary to what one reviewer stated, the signs in this book ARE all ASL. I use this book in my baby sign language classes and storytimes, just for this reason.
The reviewer may be confusing this with a book by the same title by another author, which uses non-ASL gestures. This is not that book.
There are also often more than one version of ASL signs, which are regional differences, kind of like accents or calling a 7Up or a Coke a "soda" or a "pop" depending on where you live. Pick up any comprehensive ASL dictionary, and you'll often find 2-4 versions of a sign for a particular English word. And I can assure you that you will find the versions represented in this little board book.
The book itself is well-made and a size my daughter favors - not too long, not too big, not too thick. Nice colors that catch her attention.
However, I find the choice of words to be a bit strange. I don't see why a baby needs to learn the sign for the word 'diaper', but not the sign for the word 'wet' or 'dirty' or even 'potty'. Why teach 'water' or 'milk' when one should learn 'hungry' or thirsty' first? The words 'yes' and 'no' are not in this book, and they are words we are teaching our daughter and she is already responding to the signs. The choice of teaching 'cat' and 'dog' I find a bit strange for not every household has these pets. Though my daughter adores this book, I think the selection of signs to be lacking and feel there are more useful signs out there for your little one.
