To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I purchased this product for my children because I wanted to give them a tool for learning sign language. I have been learning ASL and I want to be able to use sign for communication with my kids as well, so I knew (since I know Tara) this would be a great resource. The kids are fascinated with this book! It is so fun to see them trying out the signs. Since buying the book I realized that it not only teaches sign language, but includes valuable information about deaf culture that really should go hand in hand with learning a new language. Tara Adams is such a gifted teacher! The illustrations in this book are also clear, easy to understand, and appealing. I would highly recommend this book.
I am proficient in sign language (I have taken 4 semesters of ASL, and I frequently interact with the Deaf community), and I would recommend this book. It is simple and fairly easy to understand. It hits on important words and signs that are very common. I think that if you’re interested in learning the basics, this is a great book to use to start. I am buying this book for my future nieces and nephews!
A great resource for kids and adults! The book was easy to navigate and understand for my 8-yr old as well as myself. So easy to understand and learn that my child signed name to classmates. THANK YOU!!!
