Easter is Near! イースターはもすぐだよ!

This year Easter falls on April 24th.  Here are some signs to work on this Holy Week so you'll be ready to use them on Sunday!

Don't forget about Hallelujah / Alleluia!  Sunday is the time to bring back those words after being put away for Lent.

And don't forget about Jesus, for without Him we would not have Easter.

Hope you have a blessed Holy Week and a wonderful Easter!

Benefits of Sign with a Baby or Toddler

There are so many benefits to learning to sign with your baby.  It can be hard to "see" the benefits though if you don't know a signing babe!  On the Baby Signing Time homepage they've taken a new approach to getting the word out.
Check out the new informational video!
