Insights:

I find this a very interesting idea for classroom use, because it comes with a companion teaching guide called Hip Tips.It seems it would help hh/d children build thier self-esteem and realize Deaf people can be successful. It incorporates building language skills also, through fun things like puzzles and games. As I said, it is directly geared towards them to use in the classroom.
