Today’s the last day of our special series dedicated to sign language and how it can be used as a bridge between languages for all those of us raising our children bilingual.

As promised, we wanted to put together a list of useful links and resources related to baby sign language. We hope you take the time to explore all these for they all offer different kinds of information, including visual dictionaries (so you can learn any and all the signs you can think of), classes and products, and articles written about the benefits of sign language.
