Review quote

"'Nurseries in Britain are about to be swept by the new craze of baby signing' The Observer, Sunday 2 March 2003; 'The practice is becoming popular among parents in America. In some states, such as Florida, it is commonplace. Now it has come to Britain, with classes and seminars being held to teach the technique. Informal mothers' groups are meeting weekly to spread the message and practice the gestures...' The Observer, Sunday 2 March 2003"

About Monta Z. Briant

Monta Briant began signing with her daughter when she was six months old. The family eventually learned hundreds of signs together and Monta was so moved by the ability to communicate effectively with her daughter that she found herself telling it to anyone who would listen! She soon started Baby Sign Language Workshops and is an enthusiastic speaker and self-proclaimed 'baby sign language evangelist'.
