Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous book!!!
1. The signs are listed in alphabetical order;
2. Many vocabulary for toddlers (e.g., diaper, all gone, blanket, cereal);
3. provides concise information of American Sign Language (ASL), rationale for using sign language, FAQ, disphering the signs, and learning to sign;
4. Each sign is accompanied with an illustration;
5. This book could be used for babies as well, and probably could be used beyond toddler years (i.e., preschool and kindergarten).
Needs for improvements:
All llustrations are done with fine lines. Each shows a woman with a pony tail with a big bow signing the word or phrase, with arrows representing hand(s)/finger(s) movements. The illustrations looks great if they are artwork, but for illustration for sign language, I would recommend changes as follows:
1. Get rid of the big bow of the woman because the fine lines of the bow sometimes make readers miss the movement arrows of the signs;
2. Use thicker and darker lines for the arrows that make the movements clear;
B. The organization of the book:
It's great that the signs are in alphabetical order and has an index. However, since the signs are already in alphabetical order, the index is redundant -- It is as if a dictionary with an index. It would be better if the index is organized by topics, e.g., actions, animals, body, clothings, colors, food, people and pronouns, time, transportation,...
Finally a book that parents and caregivers can use with all the signs in one place! I especially love the memory aids to help remember the signs.
I've ordered a ton for all my clients!

For those of you uncertain about using sign as much as we do, it has really made having a toddler much simpler. He can tell stories about the time the dog had the bird in its mouth and we got the bird from the dog and took the bird outside. When he dropped his toy into a hole in the floorboards, his signing conveyed to me what had happened (since I didn't witness it.Read more ›
