This series of board books teaches American Sign Language (ASL) to babies and their families through interactive and entertaining stories. The benefits of baby sign language are impressive. Parents will marvel when babies “talk” long before they can form words, and the signing infants are less terrible when they’re two. Parents, siblings and babies can learn sign language together as they share these warm stories.
