Itsy Bitsy Spider Signs Feb 23, 2008
While the pictures are cute, the signs are not well presented. Hand positions are not correct for most of the signs. As someone who works with children with special needs and uses signs all the time, I purchased this book to be a fun addition to my sutdents' library. Once I received the book and saw how few signs were included and how poor the signs were, I would neither use it with children or recommend it to parents
Great Song! Feb 20, 2008
If you have kids between the ages of 1-3 years, your kids will love it! My kids really loved it! They try to immitate the sign language in the book and they love the colors and keep locating the spiders! :)) and have alot of fun singing together I would really recommend the book !
Great for babies Jan 2, 2008
When someone gave me this book before my son was born I didn't think I or he would be much interested in it. But then my son was born with Down syndrome, and I realized signing would be important to help him communicate before he could speak. I like this book because it clearly shows me how to do the signs, so I can sing and sign to my baby at the same time (I don't even bother holding up the pictures for him; he likes watching my hands make the signs). He is only about four months old but is gripped whenever I sing and sign from this book. It's a great asset.
Great Colors Dec 21, 2007
My Grandson, age 4 months, loves the bright colors. He reaches toward the pictures.
Best of the series! Clear, easy signs & cute pictures May 15, 2006
"Get your spider-fingers ready...!" (wiggle, wiggle)
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 this is the only book to feature a lovely REVIEW of signs used on the back page (maybe they had an extra page because the song is short?). I find the review very helpful, and it gives the baby another sing-along opportunity she always loves!
Recommended for ages 1-2 only, as it's a very basic song that older toddlers will probably not sit still for for long.
