Publisher Summary

Baby sign language makes it easy to communicate with your child, and Nita makes it fun! Nita’s First Signs teaches ten essential signs for every parent and child to know, including eat, more, hungry, milk, all done, ball, play, love, please, and thank you. A simple story about Nita and her parents teaches each sign in context, and repetition throughout each story makes them easy to practice. 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. Baby sign language collections aren’t complete without Nita!

Who Illustrated Nita's First Signs

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.
