DawnSignPress Celebrates Children’s Book Week by Giving Away American Sign Language Books at Local Library

26 April, 2018, San Diego, CA - Media and Publishing House, DawnSignPress will introduce American Sign Language through their popular baby board books at the Rancho San Diego Library during the toddler and preschool story hours Tuesday, May 1 at 10:15am and 11:15am respectively.

In honor of Children’s Book Week and to promote greater understanding between Deaf and hearing children, DawnSignPress is making this gesture to introduce ASL and to help pre-verbal babies and toddlers communicate with their caregivers. DawnSignPress will provide free books from their ASL Babies series to all families that attend.

American Sign Language (ASL) use is growing rapidly in this country. President of DawnSignPress, Joe Dannis, would like to see young children among those who are learning some signs.

Dannis said in a recent statement: “Our children’s library program is a simple way for parents and young children to bond by learning something new together. It’s great to see the faces of the children and adults, as they’re being introduced to this beautiful language. It’s also proven that youngsters who learn to sign have a reduction in frustration levels and an increase in developmental skills. With our baby board books and video series, Once Upon A Sign, families have fun learning ASL together.
