Written in the 4-color, visual, tutorial style of the "Picture Yourself" series, "Picture Yourself Signing ASL, Level One" provides the building blocks for learning ASL in a fun and simple way. The book teaches 10 Facial Expressions, 10 HandShapes, and over 60 vocabulary words as well as signs for time, space, and location. Using a "Pick and Say" rubric, each part of the sentence is assigned a color red for time, green for nouns, and blue for actions. The rubric makes learning proper sentence structure fun and engaging, and simple sentences can be built upon with the addition of individual vocabulary words. Filled with full-color photographs and images that illustrate proper HandShape formation and accompanying DVD that demonstrates the correct way to form words and sentences, "Picture Yourself Signing ASL, Level One" makes learning to sign easy and enjoyable.
