Timberdoodle Sign About Books

I have recently been accepted into the Timberdoodle’s Blogger Review Team!  Can you believe it?  I was so excited that I actually did a little jig.  😉

Well, for my first review with Timberdoodle I was fortunate to get the Sign About Books that teach Sign Language to young children (and their families!)   We have had so much fun teaching the youngest member of our household new signs that the older girls can frequently be found reading the books and practicing their signs.  It is truly a family affair!

But first, let me start off telling you a bit about Timberdoodle’s Complete Curriculum Packages.  This page has a great video about their Curriculum Packages that I highly recommend watching.  It explains that Timberdoodle has been serving homeschoolers with products and saw a need in new homeschoolers.  This need was the overwhelmed feeling or as I like to call it, the deer in the headlights look, new homeschoolers get when faced with what to buy and what to teach.  It can be overwhelming and confusing.  Sometimes it can even be the reason that new homeschoolers quit before they’ve given it a chance.

Timberdoodle saw that need and came up with their Curriculum Packages to help out.  They provide everything needed to give your children a wonderful education without the hassle of hunting and picking.  Granted, sometimes that is fun for the experienced homeschooler, but not necessarily so for the new homeschooler.

Wait a minute, you say you’ve never heard of Timberdoodle?  Oh my are you missing out!  Head on over to this page and read all about the company and then head over to this page to start checking out all the amazing products they have to offer.  You will be in awe and then you will start your wish list-I guarantee it!

Are you back?  Are you drooling yet?  I know I do every time I visit their website!  lol

Okay, back to the review.  Timberdoodle sent me the Sign About books that are designed to teach sign language to young kids.  As you know, babies and toddlers do not have the vocabulary they need to communicate and so they get frustrated very quickly.  This can lead to little ones getting in trouble because of a temper tantrum caused by that frustration.  I know I have seen that many times with our older four girls and am starting to see it with the youngest one now.  But when we can teach them signs so they can tell us what they need, there is less frustration.  For everyone!

The Sign About Books are just adorable.  They are board books that are full of color and cute drawings.  They are appealing to little ones for the colors and to adults and older children for the easy to understand descriptions of the signs.  Since the descriptions are short it is easy to read them quickly and then teach them to you child.  We have already taught Bug “more”, “please”, “stop”, “eat”, “finished/all done”, and we are working on “cup”, “thank you”, and “milk”.  I just love seeing the light in her eyes when she understands the sign and then uses it to get what she wants.  There is nothing better than seeing the light bulb of understanding go on in their eyes.

I just missed her doing “more, please!”

See the 6yo in the background?  She is learning some new signs as well!

Learning signs.

These books are durable with tight bindings and thick pages that make it easy for little hands to turn them.  There is no danger of the littles tearing these pages while they are “reading” them.  Plus, with the set of four being only $18.95 they are affordable since they will last a long time and be handed down and used over and over again.  Or you can take a look at the Baby Core Curriculum Package and see what they include in this amazing package.  There is so much fun waiting to be had with this package.

Aren’t these drawings adorable?

Let me say something here that I think needs said.  I am not a proponent of the whole teaching babies to read.  I think they need to be babies as long as they can.  So when I saw this Baby Core Curriculum Package I was a little worried.  But, when I saw what was in the package and read the philosophy behind it, I was no longer worried but excited.  You only need to scan down the page to see what’s included and you’ll understand what I mean.  The package includes balls, rattles, board books to read together, toys that help with fine motor development, all things that babies need to do anyway.  This package just includes all those items so they are right at your fingertips.  It is definitely worth checking out.

Interested in looking around at Timberdoodle but don’t want to spend hours pouring over the website?  I have the solution, get a free catalogue.  That’s right, I said FREE!  Follow this link and fill out the form to get yours in the mail.  You can also check them out on Facebook.

**As a member of Timberdoodle’s Blogger Review Team I received a free copy of these books in exchange for a frank and unbiased review.
