This DVD tells the tale of three popular children's books: The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle is a unique story about a determined spider who will not rest or play until she finishes her web. Neighborhood farm animals visit her, but they cannot distract her from her work. Owl Babies by Martin Waddell tells the story of three baby owls who wake to find their mommy is gone. When will she be back? The story reminds children that Mommy will always come home. Monster Can't Sleep by Virginia Mueller features a monster who tries everything to fall asleep...until he gets some help from his stuffed spider. Excellent entertainment for young deaf children and as a teaching tool for children learning 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!
