The book was easy to read and learn the signs. It should have been organized better. Some signs have the description on on page and the picture of the sign on the next. The word and the picture should be together. Example -the sign for cow is on the page with horse (page 124)

When that other person said it was disorganized I didn't realize just how right they were. They show words on 1 page & then the pic on a different page. Had I realized just how disorganized it was I wouldn't have bought it. This book didn't help my child at all.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
