The American Sign Language alphabet is fairly easy to learn especially when learning it in a fun way such as coloring. Repetitive practicing of the hand movements along with the words and alphabet are what will help kids learn the American Sign Language. You can use this coloring book to help children learn American Sign Language (ASL) or as a basic of alphabet coloring pages, with a bit of extra interest (my 8 year old thinks learning how to say the alphabet with her fingers is great!). Grownups are learning that coloring isn't just for kids. It's a relaxing, centering activity for adults of all ages. If you are looking for an enjoyable creative challenge, look no further.
