    Dr. Riekehof is great!

    The book is great, easy to learn from, very easy to understand. I learned Sign Language from Dr. Lottie Riekehof when she was one of the Deans at Galluadet University in Washington, DC. Her teaching was excellent, her book is a source I refer back to and have others that I have helped teach signs learn from. You truly will not waste your money on this book. It will really help you learn the art of Signing!!

    Very Easy to Pick UP!!

    I sign just for fun, and to talk to a deaf girl at my school. This book was EXTRA easy to you as compared to many others... and I learned the signs very quickly! A+ !

    Best Book on Sign Language!!

    I teach a Sign Language class yearly and I have looked at a lot of different books. This is the most clear, bigger illustrations and easier for my students to grasp.

    Outstanding book

    My Sister and I learned sign language using this book on a driving trip from Missouri to Louisiana and back. Not only was it easy and extremely helpful, it was loads of fun! I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn the second most used language in the world.

    Book well worth buying!

    This is our class text book, and I haven't seen one this close to how the deaf communicate. I've purchased other books that had signs that were incorrect. My deaf friends agree with this book's illustations for ASL. A must have for learning!
