Sign Language for Kids: A Fun & Easy Guide to American Sign Language

Front Cover
Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2004 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 95 pages
From the ABCs and the “1-2-3s” to full sentences, this fun guide, illustrated with photos of children signing, teaches youngsters all the basics of American Sign Language (ASL). They’ll start with the alphabet and counting, and move on to vocabulary for family, pets, and the home; things at school; days of the week; colors; favorite foods; sports and hobbies; and much more. Often, a sentence accompanies the sign, so that kids can grasp the use of verbs and other parts of ASL grammar. There are even explanations of how to change a statement into a question just by changing your facial expression. Now, even hearing kids can communicate easily with deaf friends or family members and have secret conversations whenever they want.

Intermediate, primary This is a good infroamtional book. It makes it easy to lean a lot of basic signs. It is not very good because some of their signs are very old. There are newer signs for words like heaven. It does give good information about the history of sign language. Media: Photography Read full review
