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.
