Sign Language Fun with Linda Bove is a children's book that teaches basic sign language. Pictures of Linda signing words and phrases are interspersed with drawings of Sesame Street characters performing the activities described. Topics covered include "In the Morning", "Family", "School Days", "Colors", "On the Farm", "Playground Fun", "Things that are Opposite", "Action Words", "People in the Neighborhood", "Spring", "Summer", "Autumn", "Winter", "Utensils and Food", "In the Woods", "How People Get Around", "In the Jungle", "The Way You Feel", and "Nighttime." Additionally, the letters of the alphabet are inside the front cover, and numbers from 1 to 10 are inside the back cover.

The title page of the book states that it was prepared in cooperation with the National Theatre of the Deaf. In a short foreword entitled "About Linda Bove", it states that

"Linda has put together this unique picture book with the help of her Sesame Street friends for any child or parent who enjoys discovering and describing the world in new ways."

Much of this material was later included in The Sesame Street Treasury series.
