Reviews - What do customers think about Learn to Sign the Fun Way!: Let Your Fingers Do the Talking with Games, Puzzles, and Activities in American Sign Language?
too young Dec 28, 2007
This is a great book for a 7th or 8th grader but too young for a 16 year old. The information about this book gives no age it will be suitable for. A nice book for the right age. I am returning it.
Great for Teaching!! Aug 4, 2007
Illustrations are much clearer than in older sign language books. Signs are up-to-date, whereas a book like "The Joy of Signing" contains some antiquated signs. I very much enjoy teaching beginners sign language from this text. Very creative and fun!
Activity and Games May 14, 2007
It is excellent sign language book with activity and games to be fun!
The Kids Like It Nov 6, 2006
I teach ASL for high school foreign language credit. My students enjoy the games offered in this book. Good practice sentences for beginners.
Cool Aug 23, 2006
The book is fun. I found a couple pages where the answers didn't match the signs but it's still a fun book.
