Very good show for learning basic sign language
27 April 2006 | by Minty123See all my reviews

This show is obviously aimed at very young children, as it is full of repetition, and basic sentence structure. The best thing about it, at least for me, is that it features some very basic sign language, to help children learn to sign the various words that they may come across. For example, one show has a sea theme, and we learn the signs for dolphin, crab, octopus, and fish. The presenter stays positive and enthusiastic throughout, and there is encouragement for the viewer to join in with the signs, and lots of colour and stories to keep the child involved.

I think this is a great show, it teaches sign language in a positive way, and I would love to see more shows like this on TV.
