Scotts Valley, California (PressExposure) July 17, 2009 -- Baby Hands Productions, a company founded on the principle that babies can effectively communicate long before they can speak, today announced the release of the My Baby Can Talkâ¢ board book series, the latest addition to the highly acclaimed and award winning My Baby Can Talkâ¢ product line. The release of these three board books compliments the existing My Baby Can Talkâ¢ DVD series; offering parents and their babies a complete early language development program recommended by pediatricians, trusted by parents and loved by babies.
The My Baby Can Talk board books are truly unique in subject and format with no equal available on the market today. These books engage babies while providing parents with the images and text to clearly understand the movement of a given sign. Each page comes alive with the word, a vibrant real world image and a delightful poem for parents to share with their babies. An illustration of the sign and a formal sign description is included for parents to easily learn and offer the sign to their little ones. The My Baby Can Talkâ¢ books are carefully crafted to inspire babies to learn to sign, learn to speak and begin to recognize the written word.
"We strongly advocate parents reading to and sharing books with their babies. Not only does this activity bring parents closer to their little ones but it also helps to build a baby's vocabulary, stimulate imagination, and improve communication skills." said Kathleen Waidhofer, Creative Director of Baby Hands Productions. "When reading is combined with learning sign language, parents begin to recognize the amazing potential of babies to communicate before they can speak. All babies are able to communicate with simple hand gestures, they are simply waiting for their parents to teach them
Research has shown that babies are able to communicate using baby sign language well before their vocal capacity to formulate spoken words is developed. Babies who use sign language tend to speak sooner with larger vocabularies, show an increase in IQ scores and engage in more sophisticated play. Preverbal signing has also been shown to reduce the frustration broadly associated with "the terrible twos." The My Baby Can Talkâ¢ board books series is available now from the My Baby Can Talk web site at an MSRP of $9.95 per book. This series will also be available by the end of this summer at the same fine retailers where the award winning My Baby Can Talkâ¢ DVD series is available.
