Signing Children’s Books: Time For Bed

Learning Tips   |  Thursday, April 4, 2019

By John Miller

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.

Time For Bed is a classic book by Mem Fox, with beautiful illustrations by Jane Dyer. It is a great bedtime book. It explores it's way through different pairs of baby and adult animals, showing them all getting ready to sleep. It is a great language tool to teach the names for baby animals and begin discussions about how they rest at night, just like we do.

You can also find links on Pinterest to activities that discuss the importance of rest and how stretching can help foster relaxation and prepare you for bed. Here is an article that includes a free printable of animal-themed stretches to do at bedtime. And also links to Tips for Toddlers that Fight Bedtime. They are worth giving a try.  As parents, we know how difficult bedtime can be for some little ones.

I hope through the Time For Bed word list you will feel confident to share this story with your children. You can also bring up signs on the Signing Savvy Member App using the pre-built word list as you go through the book.
