Summary, etc.:
A book that makes signing accessible, easy, and fun. Using almost 1,400 photographs, Grayson has created a comprehensive primer to the techniques, words, and phrases of signing. Each word or phrase is accompanied by a photo or series of photos that shows hand and body motions and facial expressions. Along with these images are step-by-step instructions for forming the sign, as well as a helpful "Visualize" tip that connects the sign with its meaning for easier memorization and recall. A unique index makes it easy to find each term and, when appropriate, its opposite.
