I searched through many signing books to find something that would be appropriate for elementary age hearing kids to learn sign. This book was about the only thing I could find. It uses cartoon illustrations of the word with the illustrated sign next to it. Six large pictures to a page. Chapter titles: Verbs, Adjectives, Nouns, Pronouns, Number signs, American Manual Alphabet. I wanted something that kids could sit down with and teach themselves in a home school situation. The index is interesting--it uses English, Spanish, Cambodian , Hmong, Lao, Tagalog, and Vietnamese. These may seem unnecessary to some, but my first teaching job involved students from several SE Asian countries. This would be a very valuable tool for parents of hearing impaired/deaf kids from these areas. This is strictly a picture dictionary type of book. There is no instruction in putting words together in sentences.
