School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-- Each of the 14 rhymes in this oversized volume is illustrated with an appealing full-color painting and a series of black-and-white drawings that show the sign for each word. What makes this title different from many other sign-language-enhanced books is that it very clearly explains what Signed English is, and then uses extremely well-done drawings of a Mother Goose figure performing each sign. Anyone interested in learning sign will appreciate this presentation, and readers already familiar with it will be able to reinforce their skills. --Christine A.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Classic nursery rhymes sport a new look in this collection--in a format that is especially user-friendly for hearing impaired readers. In addition to the traditional texts of favorites such as Little Miss Muffet and Humpty Dumpty, the various rhymes are phonetically presented in signed English. Each spread contains a full-color illustration and, on the facing page, small black-and-white line drawings of a Mother Goose figure that demonstrate the proper signage for each word. The warm-hued paintings are serviceable, but the figures are a bit static and the scenes--particularly the backgrounds--lack detail. Mother Goose's hardy fare still shines, however, providing a thoughtful title with plenty of crossover appeal. Ages 7-10. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
