Sign language makes it easy to communicate with your child, and Nita makes it fun! The second book in the Little Hands Signing series (which introduced the bestselling Nita's First Signs), Nita's Day teaches ten new and essential ASL signs for every parent and child to know: wake up, change, clothes, eat, potty, go, play, bath, book, and bed. A simple story about Nita and her parents teaches each sign in context. Even better, each page slides open to reveal accurate instructions on how to make each sign, plus tabs on the side of each page make it simple to locate every sign for later reference. No signing book collection is complete without Nita!
Nita’s First Signs is a wonderful introduction to the world of American Sign Language for children. The book is not only entertaining and creative with it’s depiction of signs, it encourages the reader to go to a video source as a means to reinforce the signs learned through real time instruction. In the end, Nita’s First Signs demonstrates the value and fun of learning sign language for ALL infants, toddlers, children, AND adults, regardless of whether they are deaf or hearing or hard of hearing.-Marlee Matlin, actress, author, and activist
