One of the benefits of sign language is that it can increase your little one's interest in books. It adds another visual as well as guides your child through the story. Below are some suggestions about reading to your child:
  1. Place the book on a cook book stand to free your hands to sign.
  2. Place the book between you and your child so you they can see both the story while you are signing it.
  3. Choose stories with simple sentences & concepts (some suggestions are included in the 'Story Book Suggestion')
  4. Once your child is familiar with the story, encourage him/her to sign with you.
  5. Sign language can also enhance literacy for children learning to read. There are some great resources that use phonics and sign language together -
