NORWICH – In recent years, many parents and child care professionals have learned the value of teaching pre-verbal children how to communicate using sign language. After trying this concept on her own, one Norwich resident hopes to help other parents with her new book.
Michelle Cryan, originally of Oxford, will be signing copies of her first book “Where is Baby?: A Lift-the-Flap Sign Language Book” from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at First Edition Bookstore.
“I was inspired by my son Miles,” Cryan said. “I started teaching him sign when he started waving bye-bye. I was amazed at how quickly he picked it up.”
