“Delightful, charming, both books [Animal Signs and Word Signs] would be felicitous choices for sign language teachers, to enhance verbal and initial reading skills. Engaging and fun.”

Silent News

“Both of these inviting books [Animal Signs and Word Signs] have immensely appealing color photos. One can readily see these two publications eagerly used in kindergarten and beginning grades as well. Highly recommended.”

Academic Library Book Review

Charming, full-color photographs of basic animals plus illustrations of their corresponding signs offer children ages 1 to 4 a fun way to learn their first signs and vocabulary words. Constructed of sturdy cardboard with a protective finish on each page, this hearty book will withstand the hard use to which fascinated young children will subject it, reading it again and again.

       Studies have shown that babies who learn to sign can communicate at an earlier age than those who learn verbal communication alone. Other research indicates that children strengthen their grammar and vocabulary skills by learning sign language.

       Word Signs and its companion book, Animal Signs, offer children exciting new worlds describing favorite things and animals while also making learning language skills fun!

ISBN 978-1-56368-048-9, 6¼ x 6¼ board book, 16 pages, color photos, sign illustrations
