My fifteen month old daughter loves this book, and its companion, Baby Signs for Mealtime. I started reading these books to her on a regular basis when she was about nine months old. I didn't see much of a response for any sign except dog.
Then, when she was fourteen months old, she started demonstrating to me that she knew ALL of the signs in both books, by doing the signs when we weren't even reading the books. The only way I even tried to teach baby signs was through the books, I wasn't consistent at all and I didn't do them at any time except when reading the books.
Imagine my astonishment when we walked past some flowers and she did the sign for flowers. I praised her, and she then did almost all the darned signs! She knew them all along! Then she heard me telling my sister about it on the phone, saying she had done all the signs except for telephone and cheerios. She ran over and did both of them! On another occasion, I asked her if she wanted something to eat, and she shook her head no and did the sign for drink instead! Wowzer!
I gave it four stars instead of five only because some of the illustrations are confusing. For example, the illustration for bird could be a lot better.
Still, these books are great and I am buying the next two in the series, animals and bedtime.

My daughter is a late talker, and this book along with the others from the series has given her signs to communicate, so she isn't frustrated. She loves looking at the pictures and then imitating the signs. She has generalized the signs to real-life objects. I am a speech language pathologist, and would recommend this series to any child in early intervention.

Just for the people who are worried by the reviews saying that this book doesn't show ASL - Baby Signs are based on ASL but not meant to actually BE ASL. They are the simplest signs possible so that babies can quickly and easily use them. The signs are not meant to be used for life, but discarded as your child learns to talk and say the real words.

This book is best used in conjuction with the Baby Signs guidebook to teach a baby a modified version of sign language. If your child is deaf, then you are better off using the official ASL signs from the start. This book is meant to be used with hearing babies and as such it shouldn't be taken as an insult to ASL or the deaf community! If you are interested in using baby signs with your hearing baby, please read the big baby signs book. We're using it and it is fantastic!

My little guy has learned about half the signs in the book and is so proud of himself when he does them. It seems like looking at the pictures of the babies signing gives him incentive to learn. When he does the signs he is so proud. It's a fun book to read to him, and introduces a few signs that are simple for him to learn. Not all the signs are so useful, like 'hat,' but it's an easy one for him to do.

This is one of my daughter's favorite books. She has really taken to signing and it is a favorite activity of hers. The signs are easy to learn with good pictures to accompany them. She happily entertains herself and goes through the book on her own to practice signs on a regular basis. She really loves the pictures of the "babies" which draws her to the book.
