Reviews of My First Animal Signs (Baby Signing)

A colourful board book to help children learn simple signs. Positive images include a child wearing a hearing aid. Other books by the same author highlight meal time and play time signs.

Viv Hampshire Nursery World. 20th December 2007

This is a signing book for hearing and deaf children, using British Sign Language. It contains hand signs for forty-eight domestic, wild and exotic animals, using drawings of small children making the signs – all produced on sturdy board pages. Children as young as seven months can be taught to use these signs, so that they can express their feelings and needs, before they begin to communicate in coherent speech. There is an illustrated guide to the hand signals on the back of the book so that adults can be confident in making the right signs to the young ones. It is great fun and provokes a lot of laughter and intimacy with the baby or small child and is one of a series of signing books.

Carousel. 31st March 2006

Alongside each illustration is a simple instruction explaining how each particular sign should be performed.
