Hip, Hip, Hooray! It's Family Day! (Story Time with Signs & Rhymes) – Booklist
. . .a concluding American Sign Language glossary helpfully describes the proper hand motions. . . .[and] art is uncluttered and keeps the focus squarely on signing. A preface to the text offers “Alphabet Handshapes,” which illustrate the finger-spelling signs for each letter of the English alphabet. In addition to the glossary, the extensive back matter includes “Fun Facts about ASL,” “Signing Activities” (comprised of two games), and additional resources. A simple, clear introduction to key ASL vocab for nonhearing and hearing alike.
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.
