From DawnSignPress-The Nation’s Leader in ASL
Just in Time for National Deaf Awareness Week
I feel very fortunate that I took a course on American Sign Language (ASL) when I was a child. I still haven’t forgotten it. I got a kick out of our girls learning ASL in preschool and my daughter is continuing to learn it in kindergarten. Arriving just in time for Deaf Awareness Week (Sept. 20 – 27, 2015), “The New Stone Soup in American Sign Language” tells the story of three traveling magicians who hope to enjoy a delicious meal after entertaining the folks in a local village. The people are happy to revel in the show but not at all willing to share their food with the performers, so the trio comes up with a plan to get the community to contribute food and learn that sharing can be a joyous and happy thing. They create the magical Stone Soup, which is enriched with delicious ingredients contributed by all – what could be better?
Hungry for some delightful family entertainment that is also educational? CHeck out the tale of magic, community and sharing with “The New Stone Soup in American Sign Language”. It is the latest release in the award-winning Once Upon A Sign DVD series, available September 22, 2015 from DawnSignPress, a company well-known for quality children’s ASL products. The performances are all done by an all-deaf cast entirely in ASL with voice-over and English subtitles so everyone can enjoy. An extra bonus is that each DVD also features “Fun Signs,” a recap of key signs from the story. Yes!
