About this deal

Detailed explanations, vivid illustrations, and practical examples ensure you grasp each concept with ease. Designed for parents and carers to share with babies, with its simple and clear instructions and endearing illustrations, this book is an ideal introduction to signing. The Centre’s own graphics, created by Ellie Newman, help to express the information in a more visual format. Fine motor skills are a crucial foundation for writing and drawing but also enable increased independence for those skills we need throughout life – the ability to dress ourselves (zips and buttons), brushing teeth – and later on, better control with cookery skills like chopping and peeling.

Interactive Reinforce your understanding with engaging activities, quizzes, and practical scenarios that simulate real-life interactions.Easy to Use– I must admit, I was slightly concerned that scanning the QR codes on each sign might be a bit off a ‘faff’, but I need not of worried as it really isn’t difficult at all. Well loved stories, in conjunction with signing, provide young children with the experience of being deeply cared about, snuggled on a special lap with a favourite book. Organised– This book is ideal as a reference book to dip into when you’re looking for a particular sign. Real-Life Whether you're engaging in social conversations, navigating healthcare settings, or pursuing professional opportunities, BSL opens doors and enhances your ability to communicate effectively. Sign language is constantly changing with sign language in Wales reflecting the local language and culture.

BSL is the language of the British Deaf Community and the use of BSL signs to support spoken language, known as Sign Supported English (SSE), is now widely accepted within the field of Special Educational Needs (SEN). You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. And for slightly older children, for whom English is an Additional Language, or who have Special Educational Needs, they provide a great language bridge. This fantastic book cleverly uses QR codes so that you can not only see their beautifully illustrated pictures of the various useful first signs, but you can scan the QR code for the sign and watch a short You Tube clip of it! I literally don’t have the vocabulary for how emotional it makes me to know parents of signing children can have access to this – and wow, you’ve done it so, so well.Signing helps develop this connection at a deep level and embeds in little children that they are seen, that they matter, that their ‘voice’ is important. This book was originally put together in 2015 by Janice, with the assistance of Emma Gilbert, for the former BSL Level 3-320 unit. we couldn’t be more proud that our Rhyme and Sign Adventures have become ‘ my baby’s favourite book’ in so many households. Cultural Immerse yourself in Deaf culture and history, gaining insights that foster appreciation and respect for this vibrant community. Clear illustrations and images vividly depict each sign and gesture, making learning BSL both enjoyable and effective.
