{Synopsis} – Teach your baby how to sign with Touch and Feel Baby Signs! Children can look at the picture, feel the touches, and learn to sign! The book features 25 signs and first words that your child should be using by age two. And all of this is provided in a sturdy, lightweight board book with touch and feels on every spread that’s just right for little fingers to handle on their own!

Signing with your baby is considered to have many benefits (behavioral, vocabulary and language skills, fine motor skills and visual attention). It is also fun, and can be a wonderful bonding experience.

Scholastic Early Learners: Interactive books for hands-on learning. Perfect for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergärtners, and first graders, too!

{My thoughts} – This is a cute and colorful lift the flap book that helps parents to teach their baby simple signing. It takes time and patience to help a baby learn these signs, so please don’t expect them to get it right away. It also takes a lot of practice.

Each illustration shows the instructions on how to do the corresponding sign. You lift the flap and it shows you what to do. My only complaint is that the flaps seem to be stiff and they don’t like to go back into their designated places. Otherwise, I do think this book has the potential to be a wonderful asset to any baby’s library.

I recommend this book for parents looking into ways to help their baby learn how to better communicate with them.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
