Nursery Rhymes from Mother Goose: Told in Signed English

Harry Bornstein, Author, Patricia Peters, Illustrator, Linda Tom, Illustrator Gallaudet University Press $21.95 (64p) ISBN 978-0-930323-99-8
Classic nursery rhymes sport a new look in this collection--in a format that is especially user-friendly for hearing impaired readers. In addition to the traditional texts of favorites such as Little Miss Muffet and Humpty Dumpty, the various rhymes are phonetically presented in signed English. Each spread contains a full-color illustration and, on the facing page, small black-and-white line drawings of a Mother Goose figure that demonstrate the proper signage for each word. The warm-hued paintings are serviceable, but the figures are a bit static and the scenes--particularly the backgrounds--lack detail. Mother Goose's hardy fare still shines, however, providing a thoughtful title with plenty of crossover appeal. Ages 7-10. (May)
