Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Appropriate for adults who are completely new to signing, this authoritative guide on sign language helps them engage with children up to age five, regardless of their hearing ability. Each of the eight chapters contain a variety of activities, such as games, finger plays, songs, and crafts, which help children develop language learning, improve communication and self-expression, and raise their self-esteem. All vocabulary comes from American Sign Language (ASL), a language with formalized grammatical conventions that stimulates language centers of the brain. Illustrations of the relevant signs are prominently featured throughout the book, and the activities have all been tested in the author's own "Little Hands Signing" classes since 2006. The practical guidance is perfect for adults new to signing as well as those familiar with ASL and wanting ideas to enhance learning and communication with their babies.
