Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
The Sign and Singalong board book series launches with a quartet of titles that use popular nursery songs to teach sign language: Baa Baa, Black Sheep; Itsy Bitsy Spider; Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear; and Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star, all illustrated by Annie Kubler. In the first book, a stuffed toy black sheep makes the rounds of adorable babies from many cultures as they demonstrate signs for the words "black," "sheep" and the number "three," among others.

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Festive watercolors show endearing toddlers singing and signing each well-loved song. Black arrows and squiggles depict the motions that their hands should make. Motions that show actual American Sign Language for words such as sun or spider have captions while those that are traditional fingerplay movements are uncaptioned. While this approach could be confusing to ASL speakers, the books should appeal not only to families with hearing-impaired children but also to those following the current trend of teaching prespeakers basic sign language.-Bina Williams, Bridgeport Public Library, CT Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
