PreS-Gr 1 The original ``Spot'' book is now offered with a Signed English translation. The text and illustrations are identical to the original, with the addition of line drawings showing the American Signed English hand move ments. Signing is simply and accurately illustrated. It is easy to distinguish the placement of the hands in each sign. Dotted lines show the beginning place ment of the hands, arrows point the di rection to follow, and a solid black line indicates the final position of the hands. These drawings are placed close enough to relate each sign to the appro priate word but do not distract from the story or other illustrations. The simple story and the hide-and-seek game as pect of this book make it ideal for sign language translation, as it allows chil dren to become involved in the signing. All children will be able to learn how to sign the story. Susan Nemeth McCar thy, Arlington County Pub . Lib . , Va.
