Reviews - What do customers think about Sign and Sing Along: Baa Baa Black Sheep (Sign and Singalong)?
Clear, easy signs demonstrated by cute illustrated babies! May 15, 2006
"Get your fingers ready to shear a sheep...!" (snip, snip)
That's how storytime begins with this book, which will encourage active participation even in babies who aren't signing. Very cute pictures of babies and helpful captions for parents on the pictures of signs make this a series of books you will enjoy together again and again.
The series is slightly inconsistent in that only one book - Itsy Bitsy Spider - features a helpful REVIEW of signs on the back page (maybe they had an extra page because that song is short?). I found the review very helpful, and wished the other books in the series had one, too...it gives the baby yet another signing sing-along opportunity!
Baa Baa Black Sheep includes many very useful basic signs, but I discovered (I guess it's a longer song?) that the full song doesn't fit, so unlike with Twinkle Twinkle, the first big ("Baa Baa black sheep...) isn't repeated in the book.
Not a big deal, but slightly off-putting to reach the end of the book in the middle of the song. :-))) This definitely hasn't interfered with dd's enjoyment, however!
Recommended for ages 1-2 only, as it's a very basic song that older toddlers will probably not sit still for for long.
