Had me crying my eyes out at the end!
Beautiful illustration, heartbreaking story.
I borrowed this book from the library, to read (and participate) with my son. I thought it would be a "cute" read... Well, having some experience with early childhood education I feel that this is not really developmentally appropriate nor conducive to learning and teaching your child sign language. The book uses young children to demonstrate the signs(which is very cute mind you), but the advantage of having an adult demonstration is that the motions are usually correct. Also (if I'm remembering correctly)there are not pictures of the objects to match the signs. I think that The Sign, Sing, and Play Kit by Monta Briant is more appropriate. I'm sure many "children's signing books" are simila to Baby Fingers.
For it only being 20 or so pages this was a great short read! I love how Tess can grab your attention in the first couple words and keep you hooked until the end. I cannot wait to read more from her!
