A very large
colourful book. A bright and interesting front cover made me
want to read it. A great way to
introduce a child to basic sign language. My daughters enjoyed the book
both the story and the sign language aspect. It has helped them both understand wildlife in our garden. They have been
spending hours looking at insects. They loved the rhymes and it has helped them
understand the wildlife. The sign aspects
of the book they really enjoyed and helped them remember the rhymes. The illustrations are very bright and
colourful really held my children’s attention. This certainly kept them
entertained due to the bright colourful illustrations and rhymes. The extra aspect of sign language was very
educative. It gave the book an extra dimension. This book is very glossy and excellent
quality. Definitely value for money as
excellent quality paper and lots of pages. I loved the extra aspect of the sign language. I would buy this book due to
excellent quality and the extra aspect of the sign language. I would recommend as an interesting read and
good quality book. Well-presented book with an extra dimension. Good quality, well presented, teaching a new
skill. Good longevity. Holds the attention of children. Claire

Bright and
colourful front cover of book. Both children we interested in the book and
immediately asked me to read it.The concept of the book is excellent
anything that encourages parents and children to learn sign language is
good.My child was very excited to delve into the book and
enjoyed finding the different insects on each page and the signs that accompany
them. Although the story line of the book
did not hold his attention.My child asked questions during
the reading about the different insects. My son did enjoy the
rhymes however overall the book didn’t hold his attention. He did engage in the sign aspect of this
book. He is learning jolly phonics at the moment so interested in
the actions to accompany the different insects.The illustrations are bright, colourful, fun. Made the insects easy
to identify and child friendly. My child attention wavered during the
book and it took some persuasion to finish the book in 1 sitting.This
book has been educational. My child and I are new to sign language so
learning the different symbols for these insects was new. I really liked
this book. Apart from my child’s attention wavering. It is a good starting
place to explore basic sign language as interesting rhymes and the
illustrations in the book were lovely.I believe that it is priced appropriately. I loved the Illustrations and continuation of finding the
insects on each page. This
is definitely a book I would select from the library but not one I would
purchase. My son did not manage to keep his attention past the first few
pages. I would recommend depending on the type of book they were looking
for. We were very excited to test this product as my son loves
books. Although the story line didn’t manage to keep his attention all the way
through he enjoyed learning the signs and discovering the insects on the pages.
I believe it is important for children to learn early a skill such as sign
language so I am in support of any book that tries to do so. Jennie Dale – Noah and Elijah 4 Years &

A lot of
information included in the book but nice pictures. Colourful front cover and
we liked the smiley spider on the front. It made us want to read it. We they
rhymes and sign language aspect but found it hard to sign and read the book at
the same time. She liked the book and the rhyme but didn’t understand why it
said ‘they have a smile on their face’ when in the pictures the animals weren’t
smiling. This book was inspiring as we spoke about the animals on each
page. She started to copy what I was
saying and enjoyed it. My daughter did not engage in the sign aspect because I
found it hard to hold the book and sign at the same time. Lovely illustrations but the insects need to
have a smile on their face if that’s what the book is saying. This did hold my
daughters attention and she really enjoyed reading the book. A good book,
educational and you could talk about all the insects. Great quality book.
Certainly good value for money. We loved
the insects that were smiling. I would not buy this book only because the illustrations do not match the words
and therefore was confusing for my daughter. I would recommend if the above
comments were considered and changed. Lovely
book, nice illustrations. But shame the explanation and words in the book
didn’t match up with the pictures. Very confusing for my daughter. Especially
when we are spending time discussing emotions and happy and sad with her. Chloe
