"Nita’s First Signs is a wonderful introduction to the world of American Sign Language for children. The book is not only entertaining and creative with it’s depiction of signs, it encourages the reader to go to a video source as a means to reinforce the signs learned through real time instruction. In the end, Nita’s First Signs demonstrates the value and fun of learning sign language for ALL infants, toddlers, children, AND adults, regardless of whether they are deaf or hearing or hard of hearing."

-Marlee Matlin, actress, author, and activist

 

"Deaf Culture, ASL, and early-childhood content were vetted by experts, making it suitable for Deaf children or families who want to incorporate sign into their daily routine...A handy resource for hearing and Deaf families alike."
-Kirkus Reviews


"Kathy MacMillan has created another engaging ASL board book for families that is sure to both entertain and educate. In Nita's Day, Nita goes through typical routines of babyhood. She wakes up, has a diaper change, eats, goes to the potty, gets dressed, plays in the park, bathes, hears a bedtime story, and goes to sleep. Cheerful illustrations accompany each of these activities, along with sturdy pull-out peek-a-boo panels. Exposed inside each panel is an illustration of Nita making the sign for the activity along with a verbal description of that ASL sign. Sturdy tabs allow readers searching for a specific sign to find it easily. Sara Brezzi's colorful depictions of Nita and her loving parents as they help and accompany her throughout the day increase the joyfulness of this book. A must for every collection."
