“This book brings renewed delight with the addition of sign drawings. Mastering the language of this book would be a fascinating project for a class or family wishing to share this holiday tradition.”

--Christian Library Journal

Now this wonderful, seasonal poem can be enjoyed in a new way by both hearing and deaf children. Accompanying the complete verses and full-color illustrations, line drawings show this holiday favorite in Signed English, the system that uses American Sign Language signs in English word order. In this exciting new rendition, children will dream of sugarplums while also learning how to form signs for them. The Night Before Christmas Told in Signed English uses both rhyme and signing to help children practice their vocabulary and learn English grammar. Students, parents, and teachers will enjoy the fun, educational way in which this holiday classic entertains at the same time that it teaches.

Harry Bornstein is former director of the Gallaudet Signed English Project and is now a consultant in San Francisco, CA.

Karen L. Saulnier is a former research associate at the Center for Studies in Education and Human Development at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC.
