Book review: Sign About book collection

Review of the Sign About book collection: Sign About Meal Time, Sign about Play Time and Sign About Getting Ready

Written and illustrated by Anthony Lewis
Available from Amazon
Ages: 0–10

Reviewed by Nadine, mum to Primrose (5 months) who is severely to profoundly deaf and wears hearing aids.

"These books have been a godsend as I’ve just started British Sign Language (BSL) lessons and some of the everyday baby words are not always included in the course. It’s fantastic to be able to sit with my daughter Primrose and show her the pictures and do the signs with her.

We take the books everywhere with us so we can use them at all times. Primrose is always watching intently whenever we use BSL and she’s already starting to use her hands as a form of communication, even at just five months old! The Sign About Getting Ready book is very useful in the morning and we’ve just started weaning so the book Sign About Meal Time is very informative. Sign About Playtime is just a really fun one! I would highly recommend the books to anyone as a great form of learning and communication. I’ll definitely buy more books and will pass them around to my friends to show how amazing they are so they can invest too.

We absolutely love these books!"
