This first series includes six of the most popular Children's Classics from Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen. When introduced in 1990, these videotapes and accompanying storybooks set new ASL standards that remain unmatched in the industry. Storytellers Ben Bahan and Nathie Marbury team up to present the best in children's literature and in a popular medium: ASL. Children and adults-deaf and hearing alike- continue to be entertained and enriched by every one of the videotapes.

Each classic is first presented in ASL on videotape, then translated into English in the storybook to make it even easier for emerging readers to follow along and read aloud on their own. Children will delight in seeing their favorite tales come to life through the storytelling videotapes and imaginatively illustrated storybooks which include a sign glossary.

Highly entertaining videotapes. Easy-to-read storybooks. Plus tips for schoolteachers and parents on how to use the program. Ideal for teaching Deaf children English or vice -versa!
