Laura Berg is an amazing woman with an incredible love for sign language. She went from YouTube sensation to founder of My Smart Hands™ and Dragons' Den star all in what seems like the blink of an eye and she did it all with the help of her darling daughter Fireese. Now Laura is proud to add author to her list of accomplishments with her book The Baby Signing Bible: Baby Sign Language Made Easy. This is where you have to imagine Laura squealing, "I wrote a book!" The book is a step-by-step guide with over 400 American Sign Language symbols, and complete with adorable illustrations of signing babies. The Baby Signing Bible can give parents, caregivers and educators the tools to teach sign language to babies, children and kids with special needs.
I had the awesome opportunity to attend The Baby Signing Bible book launch and take in the festive atmosphere complete with a live band, and a cake crafted in the image of Laura's book! I asked Laura to share what she learned from her writing and publishing experience, so to be apropos she gave her answers in the wonderful video below.
