Reading with Young Children Who Sign

The book and videotape set Reading to Deaf Children: Learning from Deaf Adults, is a good resource for parents who are signing to deaf babies. Most of the children in this tape are not babies any more, but many of the ideas David R. Schleper gives parents can be used with infants, too.
First of all, start right away. You know your baby doesn’t understand the language yet, but the closeness, attention, and bright, interesting colors and shapes are still exciting. Best of all, your baby has your undivided attention.
When you are sharing a book, keep the book visible and your signs visible. How can you do that? Most books for small children will stay open. You can put the book on a pillow so that your baby, in your lap, can see your signs and the book. You can sit side by side on the couch or on the floor and make many of your signs right on the book itself. When your baby is in her high chair, you can put the book on her tray and share the story with her if you can read and look at pictures upside down! Where do you and your baby like to sit and have conversations? Take your books there. Just be sure he can see your face, the signs, and the book.
Look for videos of popular stories. More and more companies and institutions are creating videotapes of popular children’s stories in American Sign Language and Manually Coded English. The storytellers on the tapes mesmerize even very young deaf babies. When you get the actual books out to read your baby will be excited to see a familiar story and ready to communicate about it with you.

Reem’s comment:This story was fun. I liked it because the way they showed the words and how they can describe the story was interesting. The story was easy for young children and fun for me to read as well. The book will make children laugh while they are learning the adjectives. I think the story would be even better when it is read out loud. This method, fun while learning, is the best way for young children to learn new things.

Reem’s Comment:This story is about a child who is new in a school. She comes from a small village. The other students see her as strange because she doesn’t have the things they have (a new dress). When she talks these students think she is silly. When this student brings different gifts to the teacher, the students thinks she should know better. By the end of the book the students reaize that just because someone acts differently, that person can become a friend. Children learn that other people’s behavior and knowleddge makes them special. The students then understand that it is okay for a person to behave differently.

Reem’s Comment:This is a very special story. It shows that the father can do everything; clean, do the laundry, look after the children – all activities that, in the past, only “mothers” did. Even though this is a childhood story, parents can discuss the story with their children. At first I thought their mother was dead or the father and mother were divorced. However, she entered the story later and this surprised me. It was like she was a “shooting star” arriving suddenly. This book is not just fun for children, it also shows parents that it is better not to choose sides; one children being right and the other being wrong. Rather they should let the children talk the problem out by themselves.

Reem’s Comment:This is a non-fiction book about snow. It helps children learn where snow comes from, its shape, and many other facts. I learned a lot about snow. (Being from Saudi Arabia, there is no snow.) The book is designed, with flaps on each page, to engage the student in each of the facts. It is a wonderful book in both subject matter nad method. This helps learning to know more informaiton about the snow even for children who were brought up with snow
wonderful help from the Halifax Public Library librarians
