Dissapointed Jan 10, 2007
I could not tell from the description of this book and two others which one was for adults. Thus I ended up purchasing a very elementary sunday school book. The description also failed to include the number of pages,
Not a lot of sign language Jun 26, 2002
I was under the mistaken impression that this book would contain sign language interpretation of songs for church. It contains mostly refrains and while that's okay, I really would have preferred being able to choose what I might want to sign out of the whole song rather than being given a small part of the song to sign.
