Product Information

Babies want to express their needs, especially at mealtime. Through baby signing, they can communicate when they want more, when something is too hot, or even to let everyone know it‘s ‘all gone!‘

Baby signing is easy and natural. Infants and toddlers can learn how to say what they need, what they see, and even what they feel long before their vocal chords are developed enough to let them use actual words. Both books include the most popular signs and provide parents a place to begin ‘talking‘ with their little one from the start. In this revolutionary breakthrough in parent child communication, parents have a priceless window into their young child‘s mind and heart.

        Comments about Baby Signs for Mealtime by Linda Acredolo, Susan:

        When my first child would scream in frustration or throw food off her tray when she was done eating, I decided she needed to be able to sign what she meant instead of driving me crazy. We have used these books with all five of our children and they have all treated them as favorites, requesting readings again and again. All learned to sign easily and it helped tremendously in creating some peace and allowing our children to express what they wanted without frustration. I love that they could tell me they were done eating and say please and thank you even before they could talk. Was great for us! Gave this copy to a friend whose baby was turning one. Highly recommend these books.

        I'm a deaf mother and a hearing friend of mine, who is a mother also, bought this book. I am not aganist baby signs, but it frustrated me that numerous people thought baby signs are same as ASL. This book does not explain that the signs in book are not same as ASL. If you want to teach your children ASL, make sure its not baby signs or ESL. (English Sign Language- different than ASL, American Sign Language)

        Signs are not ASL

        Comments about Harper Festival Baby Signs for Mealtime by Linda Acredolo, Susan:

        I have the series of these books to assist my daughter in learning to sign so she can communicate with a deaf aunt. What a disappointment to start reading it with her only to realize that some, but not all of the signs are not ASL (American Sign Language)! I scrapped them immediately and now I just work with my daughter on ASL myself. I can't believe the author would go through the trouble of creating these books and not be compliant with ASL.

        I like the fact that I can communicate with my 15 mo old DD while her language skills are developing. She can BABY sign more, eat, drink, all gone. Caution: don't confuse baby signing with ASL.

        GREAT FOR BABIES!!!

        Comments about Harper Festival Baby Signs for Mealtime by Linda Acredolo, Susan:

        I read the original BABY SIGNS book and taught my now 3 year old. I am so glad to have these books for my new baby. Learning how to communicate nonverbally really decreases frustration for the babies. I would also recommend the original book so that parents can read about the benefits of signing, why this is still important (even though it is not the American Sign Language for deaf people), and also to read cute stories about babies who do the signs. It's really exciting to have your 9 month old be able to "tell" you that he's thirsty, or to watch him do the sign for "more" when you're playing patty-cake. I only wish I had these books 10 years ago for my first child!
