Sign Language ABC by Lora Heller board book
A is for ASTRONAUT, B is for BIRD, and C is for CRAB. Bold and bright, hip and cool, this striking ABC book is like none other: each page teaches children the American Sign Language alphabet through a combination of letters, hand spelling, and adorable illustrations.
In this compact alphabet book and introduction to American Sign Language, Heller, who founded the New York City Baby Fingers sign language program, presents finger spelling as both a useful skill and a fun way to communicate with friends. Small hands, placed within inset circles, model how to spell letters A to Z, appearing alongside friendly cartoon characters that include a mermaid, robot, and whale. A final page includes a chart of all of the signs for quick reference. The inviting images and accessible format make this an encouraging primer on ASL. Ages 4–7. (Mar.)
