Signing Children’s Books: Go Away, Big Green Monster!
This article is part of our “Signing Children’s Books” series, which highlights children’s books and pairs them with pre-built Signing Savvy word lists to help you get started with learning and signing the vocabulary in the book. Reading and literacy is so important. By sharing these pre-built word lists, we hope to cut down on prep time for families that are just beginning to learn ASL and hope you can find more comfort in sharing literacy with our young deaf children.
Go Away, Big Green Monster! by Ed Emberley is another great book to sign with your children. It is a fun, non-scary way to discuss Monsters. This is a simple "take away/add to" book that is creatively put together so the readers see the image in the book transform as you turn each page. Young readers are always intrigued by the visual effects, but older readers enjoy it as well.
