Stunning backdrops are displayed as stories are told in beautifully crafted American Sign Language (ASL). Viewers are drawn immediately to the stories unfolding before their very eyes on this unique DVD.
The visually dazzling scenes help the energetic storytellers bring cherished international folklore to life. Folklore is a valuable way of teaching morals and values in many countries, yet such stories often are not shared with deaf and hard of hearing people.
Folklore from Around the World presents enchanting, heart-warming stories passed from generation to generation for centuries as narrated by renowned Deaf storytellers, Mindy Moore and Theron Parker, and guest storyteller, Ed Chevy.
English text accompanies the enchanting signed stories to promote bilingualism. The vibrant storytellers also discuss the tales in depth, ideal for at-home or classroom conversations. Other features include vocabulary lists, questions and answers about the deeper meanings behind each story, discussion about morals and values, and much more! (DVD: 70 minutes)
