I’ll be hitting the road and taking my interactive “Little Hands and Big Hands” programs to Connecticut this weekend!
Using sign language with young children can reduce frustration, stimulate language learning, enhance bonding, and raise a child’s self-esteem. Learn along with your child as Kathy MacMillan, author of Little Hands and Big Hands: Children and Adults Signing Together, presents hands-on games, fingerplays, songs, and more that parents can use throughout the day to smooth transitions, calm a fussy child, or engage a stubborn one. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
