Description:

American Sign Language is a wonderful silent  language of hands, face, and body that is rich with  nuance, emotion, and grace. Bantam is proud to  present the newly revised Signing :  How To Speak With Your Hands, a  comprehensive and easy-to-use guide that has long  been the invaluable and definitive guide for  families, friends, and professionals who need to  communicate effectively with deaf children and adults. Now  this expanded edition, with redesigned interiors  and updated material, includes even more signs;  large, upper-torso illustrations clearly show  formation and movement of the hands, and their relation  to the face and body. All the beautifully  illustrated signs are accompanied by precise,  easy-to-follow instructions on how to form them. This complete  guide includes chapters on common phrases, the  alphabet, foods and eating, health, recreation, and  the newest chapter covering technology, politics.  education, and music.
