A noteworthy review of Talking Hands from School Library Journal on February 1, 2015
Attractively designed, brief introductions to sign language. Each title lists a different sign, related to the topic at hand (Work covers ‘Cook,’ ‘Cashier,’ and ‘Pilot,’ for instance), and includes a large, clear photograph and quick description of the job, and an illustration and textual description of how to perform the sign. Though clearly aimed at young children, these titles could also be used with slightly older kids interested in the very basics of signing.
