10 of The Best Sign Language Books for Kids
There are so many positive effects that learning American Sign Language can have on the brain. Starting to learn a new language can be so much fun too. By introducing American Sign Language now, your child can begin to develop an interest in a new language while beginning to learn as you go along. Books are a great place to start!
Sign Language is also an excellent way to expand your child’s communication skills. As an early learner, your child may still have trouble expressing themselves. When you add additional means of communication by using their hands, your children will have more resources available to communicate their feelings and frustrations.
In addition, being bilingual offers more options and opportunities. You can start raising bilingual children today.
