BabyTime with Sign Online

Based on the popular BabyTime with Sign storytime program, this new video series will show you how (and why!) to use baby signs with your little ones. 

Using baby signs with children birth to 24 months has been shown to reduce frustration, increase bonding, and speed language development. Children who can communicate their needs before they can speak the words, are often happier and more confident. It's easy and fun to do!
