    Loved that this was interpreted and acted out by the children. It is a great way to get other children to break out of their shells when they see other children acting and signing. Great concept.

    This is a FAVORITE of my daughter who loves seeing stories in sign language. Love the theme of the story too - it relates so much to being different and deafness and Down Syndrome are surely in that category, so my daughter can relate so well to it.
