ABOUT NITA'S DAY

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!

 

ABOUT THE RUNAWAY SHIRT

In The Runaway Shirt, a mother and child transform the chore of laundry into a afternoon of laughter and imagination.

Laundry is a chore, but when a child climbs in the basket, everything becomes a game. Follow along as this mother takes a break from folding clothes to join her child in the delightful laughter of imagination. In The Runaway Shirt, housework and pretend play come together to transport readers to a kid’s world of wonder and excitement. Each page of charming illustration is a work in joy and mirth. Who knew folding laundry could be so fun?
