Babies and children understand much more than they can say. It's never too early to start using Te Reo Maori or sign language of Aotearoa. Speaking Te Reo Maori and using sign language alongside English is a beautiful way to not only acknowledge the official languages of New Zealand, but also boost brain development. Speak to your baby as often as you can, narrate your day. The more language you share with them, the more their brain grows! The sign language pictures in this book have arrows to indicate direction or hand movements so be sure to look carefully at each sign image.
