Teaching Signs for Baby Minds(TM) teaches you how to communicate with your baby or toddler before he or she can speak! These fun, easy-to-follow DVDs show you how to use American Sign Language (ASL) to teach your baby how to communicate wants, needs, and observations. Teaching your baby sign language is a gift the two of you can share throughout your lives. Learning signs can also have a profound effect on your child's developing mind.
