What A Find!,
This review is from: Baby Signs Starter Kit (Hardcover)
I just received my Baby Signs Complete Starter Kit. I'm thrilled! It 'sealed the deal' on the choice to teach my sign language using the Baby Signs Program. The book tells that this program has hard evidence WHY it works - people, they did 20 years of research! The examples of how it works and what to expect helps me to have realistic goals. The Video Dictionary CD has a beginning section where you 'meet the founders'. This all started with MOMS that happened to be doctors...abd they too questioned whether signing would delay speech (Their research found it accelerated speech development!)
The video dictionary can be watched straight thru or you can scroll to a word. A smiling woman appears and you hear directions on doing the sign (Really helps you remember them) as you see her make the sign.
The Quick flip reference guide is a resource wonderful for me that has magnets to attach to the fridge. Great for babysitters and grandparents when they are over.
The four little books for my baby are just the right size, have 8 pages. I like how the pages that face each other aren't too busy, but focus on a single sign at a time. ie A cute character doing the baby sign for 'cat' with the facing page of the character sweetly with the cat. These are definitely books great at home and that I can slip in my purse or diaper bag to use when we're out, or for use in the car.
The 'Favorites' DVD is fun to watch with my baby. It has upbeat music, puppets, babies actually doing the signs, characters doing the signs and 'Beebo'(a huge fuzzy bear with yellow gloves)too.
I liked the flyer that explained other products and especially classes where I could go & meet other parents doing this same program.
This Kit is definately a keeper!
