Sign and Sing Along: Baa Baa Black Sheep
PreS–Festive watercolors show endearing toddlers singing and signing each well-loved song. Black arrows and squiggles depict the motions that their hands should make. Motions that show actual American Sign Language for words such as sun or spider have captions while those that are traditional fingerplay movements are uncaptioned. While this approach could be confusing to ASL speakers, the books should appeal not only to families with hearing-impaired children but also to those following the current trend of teaching prespeakers basic sign language.–Bina Williams, Bridgeport Public Library, CT
