What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Sign language makes it easy to communicate with your child, and Nita makes it fun! The second book in the Little Hands Signing series (which introduced the bestselling Nita’s First Signs), Nita’s Day teaches ten new and essential ASL signs for every parent and child to know: wake up, change, clothes, eat, potty, go, play, bath, book, and bed. A simple story about Nita and her parents teaches each sign in context. Even better, each page slides open to reveal accurate instructions on how to make each sign, plus tabs on the side of each page make it simple to locate every sign for later reference. No signing book collection is complete without Nita!

I’m so torn on this one! LOVE the concept, super cool mechanics to slide open each page to learn how to do the sign, and the illustrations are cute. That being said, the repetition of “Time for . signs Nita.” felt . . . repetitious? As a parent reading this book, I’d read it through solo first so you aren’t squinting at the diagrams trying to figure out the signs as you go along.

Who Illustrated Nita's Day: More Signs for Babies and Parents

illustrator
Sara Brezzi

Sara Brezzi Italian surface pattern designer and illustrator, was born and raised in the small town of Poppi, near Florence. She still lives there with her partner and their little boy. Her father was a librarian and her mother was a kindergarten teacher, so she grew up surrounded by beautiful books and images. This certainly influenced her imagination. She graduated from the University of Siena with a BA in preservation of cultural heritage and history of illustration, but she always preferred the application over the theory of art. Her designs are hand drawn and then scanned in for processing and color management. She loves creating colorful illustrations by combining cheerful and quirky elements to convey a positive vibe and spread joy.
