This is a great book for children and adults. The art is really good and keeps children interested. Also it is educational. It teaches kids the alphabet and sign language for every letter. This is a really great book and I recomend it to any parent.

Since initially finding this book at my local library I desired a copy for myself(52 yrs.& hearing impaired)and my great niece. I highly recommend it to all parents encouraging them to use it also. I have innumerable books on signing but with Ms. Fain's Handsigns the ease of the hand positions for signing the alphabet and all illustrations are exceptional. This book teaches too the letter alphabet, includes a Glossary Of Animals noting information of each. I made a game of sort where we collected, most often used, realistic stuffed animals illustrated in Handsigns. We would then sign, write,and research further the animals. As my neighbor is deaf, only signs, my great niece thinks she's pretty clever when signing her words to him with each letter. Thank goodness he is patient! She is almost 4yrs. and this is still a favorite book. Dwight's review is definetly accurate. Handsigns: A Sign Language Alphabet is a must have for the deaf and hearing impaired, schools, children..individuals of all ages.

Format: Paperback
It's a very clever idea - every page shows the handsign for the letter, and a picture of an animal. (Sometimes, as with B, we get two animals - bear and bee.) I firmly believe that using signs and the manual alphabet helps to reinforce literacy skills.

But some of the animals are a little obscure - like the nautilus or the urchin - and the names aren't printed on the pages. You have to flip back to the index. That makes reading the book with a young child awkward. Also, I would really have liked to have seen - even in the index - a list of signs for the animals themselves.
