While learning a new language isn’t a ?knack” for everyone, Knack American Sign Language finally makes it easy. The clear layout, succinct information, and topic-specific sign language partnered with high-quality photos enable quick learning. By a ?bilingual” author whose parents were both deaf, and photographed by a design professor at the leading deaf university, Gallaudet, it covers all the basic building blocks of communication. It does so with a view to each reader’s reason for learning, whether teaching a toddler basic signs or communicating with a deaf coworker. Readers will come away with a usable knowledge base rather than a collection of signs with limited use.

This 8.5x8" guide to essentials of American Sign Language (ASL) illustrates key phrases in many categories with color photos of several signers of different ages. The two-page spreads include boxes on ideas to try, fact boxes, and things not to do. The book begins with letters, numbers, and colors, then proceeds through making a date, baby talk, classroom signs, safety and first aid, staying healthy, signs at the office, and signs at church. Appendices give contacts for deaf cultural and sports organizations, family organizations, national deaf organizations, telephone and videophone relay services, web sites for and about the deaf community, and online games and dictionaries. Chafin is a hearing adult child of deaf parents whose first language is ASL. She writes and speaks on parenting topics. Grindstaff is associate professor at Gallaudet University.
