Ratings and Reviews
This series of books has blown me away! They are leaps and bounds above any other ASL app. We are learning ASL as a family because of our youngest daughter (2) and these stories along with the abundance of videos of words has helped us learn a lot in just a few days. This was obviously well thought out and includes a full video of the story being read, the ability to flip through pages at your own pace while choosing highlighted words to review, and a glossary of video words. It is so helpful to see each of these formats and has increased our comfort level in understanding signs from those fluent in ASL. We love learning together, especially since we cannot find the time to take an official course. The readers / actors bring these stories to life and the artwork is beautiful. Please make many more of these! Bravo!
These are awesome!
