Illustrated by Anthony Lewis
Five Little Ducks is a lovely nursery rhyme and what we loved about this version is that the children in the book are signing and there are the words included on the page so you know what each sign means. Isn't that amazing. This book is great for baby signing fans and death and hard of hearing babies and toddlers.
About the Book
Children are able to communicate by signing before they develop the skills necessary for speech. By teaching simple sign language to children from as young as eight months, we can help them to convey their emotions and their needs. When children begin to talk, having sign language to fall back on provides a comforting safety net. Favourite nursery rhymes and songs, with babies and toddlers, signing and miming along. Developed with the support of Lancashire C.C. Early Years and Childcare Service, and SureStart Resources Ltd. as part of their 'Sing, Sign & Rhyme' series, these books encourage actions through mime and BSL signs.
