Research has shown that very young children can learn sign language before they learn to speak. Teach Your Tot to Sign: The Parents’ Guide to American Sign Language provides parents and teachers the opportunity to teach more than 500 basic American Sign Language (ASL) signs to their infants, toddlers, and young children. Hearing children, deaf children, and children with special needs can benefit from learning the elementary signs chosen for this handy pocket-size book. Young children who can communicate using simple signs become less frustrated and also bond in a special way with their parents. In teaching ASL to parents of toddlers and preschool teachers, author Stacy A. Thompson recognized the need for a book that could be used at home and in the classroom. Her book features fundamental signs of great appeal to young children and concise instructions on how to sign, including the critical importance of facial expression.

Teach Your Tot to Sign anticipates all of the common desires and interests of young children ? food, pets, planes, trains, cars, and boats, games, holidays, vegetables, family ? in short, nearly everything. Reflecting children’s endless curiosity, the vocabulary chosen ranges from signs for ?baby,” ?broken,” ?clown,” ?dinosaur,” ?firefighter,” ?gentle,” ?hot,” ?hurt,” ?ketchup,” ?pacifier,” ?rooster,” ?sad,” ?spaghetti,” ?wagon,” ?water,” ?wet,” to ?you’re welcome,” and even ?McDonalds.” This lively assortment of signs will help every child convey earlier in their development their thoughts, feelings, and desires to their parents and teachers.
