It is so easy that my 3 yr old can do it.

This is a very cute book and does teach children a few signs but not that many. I was a little disappointed.

I have heard that teaching your children sign language at an early age helps their brains. I purchased this book hoping it would give me signs that you use everyday but it didn't. It is for kids that already know how to talk.

I work with autistic children, and have recently started to sign to speak to my one child. I ordered this book in hopes that I would be able to learn more, in a simple way- and it definately was more then I expected! The pictures were even simple enough that she could do it along with me!

This book isn't really very helpful for learning sign language. There are about 60 pages of pictures. there are 2 pages per letter of alphabet and give a few words per letter with a picture and a cartoon character doing the sign. So, you can't really tell how to move your hand if you are trying to make the sign. I don't see little kids being able to use this. so, i would skip this one. sorry i spend $12 plus shipping on it.
