Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A mother and daughter spend a sunny day at the beach together where they swim, dance, build sandcastles, and, most importantly, communicate. But their communication is not spoken; rather, it is created by loving hands that use American Sign Language.

Readers will learn how to sign 15 words using American Sign Language with the help of sidebars that are both instructive and playful. And the beautifully illustrated beach scenes will appeal both to the deaf community and to hearing parents and children, who will enjoy this gentle introduction to some basic words in ASL. Hands and Hearts is a picture book unlike any other, revealing the special bond between mother and child.

Praise for Hands and Hearts

andquot;A memorable excursion.andquot;

--Kirkus Reviews

andquot;The book is recommended for libraries with an interest in ASL, and those in need of beach-themed picture books for the mommy-and-me crowd.andquot;

--School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Long before they?re able to talk, babies have a whole lot to say. With this adorable board book of essential signs, babies and toddlers can easily learn how to communicate their needs, wants, and feelings?and even make basic observations?with a simple gesture. Studies show that babies who use sign language feel less frustrated, throw fewer tantrums, and often learn to talk more easily. Just point to a sign in the book, say the word while making the sign, and the baby will soon be signing. Communicating a wet diaper or a hungry belly, asking for help or saying ?all done? becomes as easy as waving hello or good-bye. And these are just a few of the thirteen signs inside this small and adorably illustrated board book, perfect for little hands?and minds?to grasp.
