New Reduced Price
My First Makaton Symbols and Signs (Book 1) is the first book in a unique series of beautifully illustrated children's books designed to be read for pleasure. The illustrations and text are accompanied by Makaton Symbols and Signs which encourage the development of essential communication and literacy skills. Parents and children, at any level, can understand and enjoy reading this book together. It includes instructional text and covers a range of Makaton Signs carefully chosen to help young children express their needs and begin to interact with people around them.
The following signs are included; mum, dad, baby, teddy, drink, milk, eat, biscuit, cat, dog, bird, tree, car, house, toilet, bath, book, bed, sleep, hello, goodbye, good, bad, what, where, here, there, yes, look, help and sorry. The Makaton Symbols presented with written words are also a great way to build children's confidence whilst learning to read. Text is a very abstract concept for young children to grasp but by using iconic symbols together with words the process becomes much more intuitive. The benefit of using Makaton with children of all abilities is widely recognised and its use is growing in popularity. Tipi Books are fun to read and a convenient introduction to Makaton.
My First Makaton Symbols and Signs (Book 1) has been awarded the Makaton Quality Mark.
