My Signing Book of Numbers

Patricia Bellan Gillen

  $9.95 e-book

“Individual children count an amusing assortment of objects and sign them.”

The New York Times Book Review

“This large, attractive book should appeal to young deaf and hard of hearing children who sign and to their hearing friends and relatives.”

Ear and Hearing

“The illustrations depict children with cutesy chubby cheeks, wide eyes, and vacuous smiles; they are clear and colorful, and some of the children are shown wearing hearing aids. This type of material is needed and in demand, and this book provides solid basic information and clear signing.”

School Library Journal

This full-color picture book helps children learn their numbers in sign language. Each two-page spread of this delightfully illustrated book has the appropriate number of things or creatures for the numbers 0 through 20. The signs for the numbers 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, and 100 are also included. Each sign/number appears in the corner of the page. Written explanations of how to form each sign are provided in the back of the book.

Patricia Bellan Gillen is Dorothy L. Stubnitz Professor of Art at Carnegie Mellon University.
