This DVD brings to life the children's books The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister and Small Green Snake by Libba Moore Gray. It's wonderful entertainment for young deaf children and can be used to help children learn American Sign Language (ASL). The DVD can also serve as a teaching aid for adults seeking to improve their sign-language storytelling skills. The books are signed by experienced, entertaining child and adult signers. Narrated in English. 28 minutes, ASL closed captioned
Note: The spoken English narration on the video corresponds with the ASL storyteller and may not exactly follow the printed English text. You can order the entire Read With Me DVD Series as a set...giving you great savings!
Testimonials: "I just wanted to say how much I and my 2-year-old have been enjoying these DVDs. (We're hearing, but enjoying learning ASL -- my daughter communicates about equally in signs and English at the moment.) It's a great way to learn. Katy enjoys making the signs for all the animals she recognizes, and I enjoy seeing how ASL grammar is used in action. Our favorite narrator is Tara Holcomb -- she's so animated and expressive, and my daughter loves being told a story by an older child." ~Jenny Read, parent
