Songs and Rhymes Singing songs and rhymes is the perfect way to bond with your baby and share quality time. It also aids language development by introducing them to the natural sounds and patterns of speech. Combining these with actions also stimulates the brain and helps muscle development and coordination. Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes… Winner of Sainsbury’s Baby Book Award 2002

Baby Signing Board Books By introducing babies to simple signs at an early age, we can enable them to communicate their emotions and their needs. Babies are able to coordinate and control their hand muscles much earlier than their speech muscles, meaning they can produce recognisable signs from as young as seven months. This ability to communicate not only reduces frustration for babies and their parents/carers, but it also helps their language development. Using standard British Sign Language signs means that your baby’s signs will be understood by other parents or carers who sign, as well as by you.
