My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from Callisto Publisher’s Club. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

I’ve always been interested in sign language and when I was a kid, my friends and I learned the letters but when I saw We Can Sign! An Essential Illustrated Guide to American Sign Language for Kids, learning the basic signs was just what I’d always wanted. It’s a great book to learn along with the children in my life.

The book starts with an introduction to ASL and clear illustrations of how to sign the alphabet and numbers. The following chapters illustrate and explain many basic signs. I really like the “Did you Know?” sections found in various spots in the chapters. They give tips and interesting tidbits about ASL.

I’ve gone through We Can Sign! An Essential Illustrated Guide to American Sign Language for Kids a couple times, and I’m still learning the signs. I can’t wait to share it with my grandkids, niece and nephew!
