Signing Story Time

This is a great way for you and your child to learn American Sign Language (ASL) vocabulary as you play, sing, and sign along with your friends and family! The signs are completely based upon the books that we read, and books are chosen based on the age of children signed up.

Please register only one child, as the fee is per family. Please make sure to answer questions to let RARA know the total number of people attending, so we can ensure social distancing can take place. Please limit your number to three total people at this time.
