What’s new in this collection?
In addition to the Baby Signing Time Music CDs and Flash Card Sets, we’ve included:
- New Board Books
Baby Alex, Baby Leah, and Baby Hopkins invite your baby to learn new signs in fun ways in these full-color board books. Each book also includes a sign guide for parents.
- New Parent Guide
This guide to early learning will teach you how to bond with your baby and enhance early learning through talking, signing and reading together. Includes a Sign Glossary of all the signs taught in Volumes 1-4.
- Enhanced DVDs
We’ve added new footage of the printed words with Rachel’s fingers running under them as each one is spoken to show babies that printed words have meaning. It’s part of the “see it, sign it, say it” approach to early learning.
Why did you make the new collection?
We asked Emilie Brown, co-creator of Signing Time and Baby Signing Time, to answer: “Parents are their child’s first teachers, so we made sure this Baby Signing Time collection included a parent guide to early learning. Every parent-child interaction can strengthen the relationship and feed a child’s growing mind. Reading together is an especially powerful way to connect and learn. That’s why we insisted on board books being included in the new collection. We’ve added new footage to the DVDs to highlight printed words. Our goal isn’t to get babies to read, but to experience how language works: a word can be spoken, signed, or printed, and they all share the same underlying meaning. This idea may seem simple to adults, but for young children, it’s a profound discovery.”
Can I order the board books separately?
The board books are only available with the collection. If you already have the Baby Signing Time products and want to get the board books, we suggest that you consider purchasing the new collection and giving the items you already have as gifts.
