Pictures help babies make the connection Feb 28, 2008
I am a baby sign language instructor. The Early Sign Language series by Stanley Collins is one of my favorites. When teaching sign language to your baby it is important to associate each sign with the object or concept it represents. This series of board books is wonderful in this regard because the colorful illustrations make it easy for your baby to make the connections.
Could use some explanations to go with the pictures Jun 19, 2007
This is a pretty cool book to learn food signs but some of the pictures are a little confusing and there is no explanation or directions on exactly what to do so your not sure if your doing the right thing.
Helpful tool for teaching sign language to a child Jan 14, 2005
I am a license Interpreter and also the child of Deaf Adults (CODA). I have many sign language dictionaries but was looking for something that I could use with my son, who is two, that would be visual, sturdy and not be Signed English. This book fits all of my criteria. While some of the signs are a little "English" this book is a wonderful resource to teach my child sign. When learning or teaching sign- language it is better to connect the sign to the object it represents that to connect it to the English word. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to teach their children American Sign language.
Not bad... whets your appetite.. Jun 11, 2000
This is a good book for those who are familiar with sign language and want more information that is available in most introductory texts on food signs. My only complaint is that there aren't that many signs here. You'll still have to finger spell alot of words after this one...
