Just before Kaelyn was born we received a Baby Signing Time DVD at a baby shower. I was thrilled. As a former early childhood educator and through education classes in college, I had seen this work first hand and knew it would be perfect for our little one. There are so many wonderful benefits of sign language with young children...even babies! By the time Kaelyn was 3 months old we started to introduce her to this great series! Very early on we noticed her using signs like eat, more, and milk. As time went on she began using more and more signs....cracker, diaper, potty, dog, etc.

Baby Signing Time was a fantastic way to instill confidence and security and helped us communicate with her in a way which allowed for fewer instances of frustration on her part when she was feeling she couldn't tell us what she needed. The biggest difference though...was the way it helped to stimulate early learning, her vocabulary, and language skills. She began saying words at a very early age and was using two words and more to make sentences shortly after she turned a year old. After the very positive experience we've had with Kaelyn, I know without a doubt it's something we'll do with this next baby as well. I think signing is a terrific communication tool and one more parents should consider! For those who aren't familiar with Baby Signing Time...it's a collection of DVD's that makes learning signs fun through music, animation and real babies under the age of two signing!

I am SO excited because the wonderful people behind Signing Time have offered one of my readers a Baby Signing Time Volume 1 & 2 + CDs Giftset (a $59.99 value)!!! This set is perfect for kids as young as 3 months old and up to 3 years old!

    I think the Flash Cards would be great to use as well.

    I learned ASL on my own (enough to get by) and taught my son when he was a teeny baby. Amazing how quickly they pick things up. He signed a lot from about 9 months to 18 months...when he really started talking. But he still uses a few signs today without even realizing he's doing it.

    Yeah, how about the whole DVD set? I've been wanting to use signing with my daughter, but being a working mom makes that nearly impossible because she's with other people every day. :-( BUT if I had some DVD's to show them and encourage them about what to do...it could work after all! Pick me, pick me! ;-)
