Overview

Children have a lot to say, whether through gestures, movements, pictures or words. American Sign Language incorporates all of these natural skills, and Cindy Wheeler�s book, using helpful hints and picture clues, makes these signs accessible to even the youngest child. To make the sign for tiger, show the stripes on his face, or for please, rub your heart. More Simple Signs introduces 29 words from a young child�s everyday life. And the hand sign alphabet is included on the endpapers for children ready for the extra challenge. The result is a broader understanding: children don�t simply learn a few words in a new language; they learn that there�s a completely different world of communication. �Booklist for Simple Signs

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2An approachable, easy-to-understand book about sign language. Words such as "play," "yellow," and "girl" are presented on single pages with cheery full-color illustrations as well as smaller black-and-white line drawings of a child demonstrating the sign. Thus, frogs on lily pads appear on the page for "green" and a smiling youngster signs the color. The slim text consists of hints for making and remembering the sign. The sign for "girl," for example, mimics tying the strings of a bonnet, and the sign for "stop" shows hands formed like a barrier. This will be a popular addition for most collections.Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY
