Story Time with Signs & Rhymes – School Library Journal

The text is lively, and Bauer’s colorful illustrations crackle with cartoony energy. Each book contains a glossary of signs including illustrations and descriptions of how to produce the signs, as well as “Fun Facts about ASL,” and “Signing Activities.” The signs themselves are well chosen for the target audience, and the structure of the stories provides a great way to introduce and reinforce basic ASL vocabulary for hearing children.

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.
