Today is my FAVORITE Signing Time SALE:
When a family asks me which DVD I think they should pick, here is what I tell them:
If your family is brand new to signing, I recommend that you start with Signing Time volumes 1-3 (My First Signs, Playtime Signs, Everyday Signs) or Baby Signing Time (4 volumes) based on the age of your child. Both sets cover the most popular words/signs that a young child will use first and will give your family a strong foundation for signing success. (Note: We love our digital versions for learning on the go!)
If you and your child have been signing for some time, these are my five favorites to watch with my own children :
1. Signing Time, Volume 10: My Day
2. Signing Time, Volume 10: My Neighborhood
3. Sing and Sign
4. ABC Signs
5. Signing Time Series 2, Volume 3: Move and Groove
Keep in mind that the San Antonio Public Library carries the entire Signing Time and Baby Signing Time series, and Netflix features several short clips from Signing Time Series 2. We also recommend that you sign up for the Two Little Hands digital subscription service, which is absolutely FREE for the first month! (NO commitment, cancel anytime!).
For a limited time:

As I’ve mentioned a time or two, our family LOVES books. We gravitate toward books with great story lines and bright, colorful illustrations–as well as simple concept books that my toddler can read independently.
Several years ago, we purchased the ABC Signs board book from Signing Time. It went everywhere with us, including the water table at one point! As Kate has grown and learned her letters, this has been a great book for errands and road trips. We’ve slowly added to our collection, and now own five out of the six books offered on SigningTime.com. We all enjoy looking at the bold pictures & playful drawings as we practice our signs when we’re out and about.
When I heard that the Signing Time board books were going on sale for just $6.49 each, I knew that I had to share it with all of you!
I highly recommend the entire series for all families. (Sad to say, these books are not being re-published, so once they are sold out, they will be gone forever!)

My first daughter was born 6 years and 27 days ago. She was born in a cold operating room 14 weeks too soon, weighing in at just 1 pound, 8 ounces (or 680 grams for you NICU veterans). Her first cries sounded more like the tiny mews of a newborn kitten, nothing like what I had expected.
By the time Michael Phelps won his record-setting 8th gold medal in the Beijing Olympics, our precious miracle was 2 months old and THREE WHOLE POUNDS. Our summer was spent by the isolette of a tiny little girl–thankfully, we had one of the coveted four windows.
Addie’s due date was September 18th. She was released from the NICU on October 24th, and we spent the winter in quarantine to protect her fragile lungs from RSV. We started weekly therapy sessions with an occupational therapist, and then we added in physical therapy, and finally, speech therapy when she was 18 months old (15 months adjusted).
At the age of 18 months, Addie had been wearing glasses for six months, was still six months away from taking her first independent steps, and had ZERO words to communicate her needs.
It is not an exaggeration when I say that Rachel Coleman and the Signing Time DVDs gave our family the gift of communication.
With American Sign Language at her disposal, Adeline went from being non-verbal to reading in a span of two years. There are some days when I wish our chatty extrovert could be quiet for five minutes in a row, but when I stop to think about the unbelievable amount of times that I prayed I would eventually hear my daughter call me “Mommy,” I forget all traces of annoyance.
This time next month, our entire family will be meeting Rachel Coleman for the first time at her concert in Austin. I’m positive that we will not be the only ones in attendance who have Signing Time to thank for the precious gift of communication with our children.
Will you be there? Will you partner with us to spread the word about the concert?
