Reviews - What do customers think about Signing Is Fun (Perigee)?
Signing is fun! Jul 28, 2007
Very good book! It is simple and has full pictures showing exactly how to do the signs. It has really helped me to communicate with my deaf friend. The only dissapointment is that I paid like $2.50 for it and when I got it it was stamped with a .59 cent price tag! Shipping was like $3.99 and the envelope was marked like $1.89. If I didn't like the book so much I would feel a little cheated.
Wonderful book for families! Jan 13, 2004
We borrowed this book from the library and my 5 year old is thrilled with how many of the signs she already knows, and is able to look up the new signs she wants to learn, even though she is still in a pre-reading stage. The pictures introduce the signs and make it exciting for her to use. Now my 5 year-old is teaching our 2 year-old new signs.
I have several other sign language books including a college course workbook. Mickey Flodin does great with the illustrations and grouping signs in logical easy to use patterns.
We have been teaching our children sign language in bits and spurts since our oldest (now 5 years) was 6 months old. By her 1st birthday she had a vocabulary of about 10-15 signs, but was already speaking over 100 words in sentences. She never had any frustration with not being able to communicate with us.
Our 2 year old has taken longer to speak, but we haven't used as much sign language with her. I am convinced it has been more frustrating for her not being able to communicate with us, and has delayed her speach development.
This has definitely been a family project, and has given us new ways to be close and express ourselves when "words" just aren't enough.
