Wow, Wow, Wow! Yesterday I attended Dr. Garcia's "Baby Sing Language Workshop"; WOW!! I can't begin to express how much I appreciate Dr. Garcia's books and workshops! For those of you who may not know, Dr. Garcia was the first person (in the world!) to suggest that babies are happier knowing signs before they're physically able to speak. Makes perfect sense to me! Babies who can express their needs and wants, problem-solve and communicate, these babies are happier. And so are parents!
If you're a parent that cares deeply about your baby, I strongly encourage you to find a Dr. Garcia workshop near you or purchase his outstanding book (dvd included) "Dr. Garcia's Complete Guide to Baby Sign Language".
Ahead of you is that first beautiful moment when your baby communicates to you with language: maybe it will be the sign for "LOVE" or "DAD" or "MOM" . Your family journey - of sharing the wonders of this exciting world together through language - begins!
