Big Blue Bowl (Story Time with Signs & Rhymes) – Booklist
Children who are interested in learning sign language will find the Story Time with Signs & Rhymes series an intriguing place to start. Rather than just offering the letters and some examples of American Sign Language (although that is included), the main selling point here is how the story becomes a vehicle for the signs. Happily, an appended two-page spread gives more detailed instructions on how to make the word, as well as the reasoning behind the sign. The pleasing, thickly colored artwork is well above that found in many series books, and even without the sign-language hook, kids will enjoy the repetition and rhyme of the tale. “Fun Facts” and “Signing Activities” neatly close this well-thought-out book.
