Want to learn sign language the fun and easy way? Here's a book easy enough for even the preschooler in the house. It has some beginning information about the Deaf and Sign Language. The author uses her deaf amateur sleuth, Conner Westphall, at the age of eight to explain about deafness. She also discusses interpreters, gives tips on how to fingerspell proficiently, and gives pointers on hand positions when signing. There are "Did you know" bits throughout explaining subjects many are curious about concerning deafness. With the 10 practice sentences at the end of each chapter, readers can try out their newly learned skills. The pictured signs in the book range from alphabet and numbers to animals, home signs, activity signs, silly, fun signs, and much more. There is a wide range of fun signing games in the back that are great for practicing. There is also a large variety of resources for the many different facts in the book. The characters signing in the book are fun and cartoon like, yet clear and concise in demonstrating the sign.
