Overview

This book teaches children how to learn the (ASL) American Sign Language numbers through easy to see and understand illustrations and visual demonstrations.

There are many developmental and social benefits to learning sign language:

Bilingualism is a great brain booster. It enriches and enhances your cognitive processes, helping you to become a better problem solver, a more creative thinker, a better listener, and you can obtain greater academic achievement! Knowing another language also promotes cultural awareness, literacy, and other intellectual benefits.

It�s growing in popularity. Statistics show that American Sign Language (or ASL), is the fourth most studied language in colleges and universities in the U.S.

Communicate with deaf babies. Speech is a medium. It is imperative that deaf babies are exposed to natural language (i.e. ASL), within the first two years of life.

Sign language is beautiful! People find sign language unique, fascinating, graceful, and expressive. It is difficult to learn all the signs, but the experience is all worth it and fulfilling.

Fingerspelling helps kids and students learn how to spell a word, letter by letter.

Appreciate literary arts. Visual-spatial language is filled with cinematic devices, rhymes, rhythms, movements, and more.

Sign language is used to communicate with some animals such as some chimpanzee�s and gorilla�s.

Sign language is also used as a profession. Knowing basic sign language can be useful for firefighters, police officers, and other civic servants, as well as scuba divers, stock traders, and more.

You can talk with sign language from a distance or in a quiet or loud setting and be understood.

Develop cultural awareness and language competency!

Enjoy learning the sign language numbers!
