Usage: For children that are interested in numbers, sign count before you do any counting. As baby progresses, you can use count to prompt them to start counting. At first counting can just be like a song, with you repeating the words and performing the signs. But, as baby advances, you can use the sign to prompt them to count some small groups of things.
