I am an ASL student in my 3rd semester of sign language at the University of Toledo, in Ohio. I love the language and my teacher introduced to your website. I love it! I just wanted to say I really appreciate all the work you do and making these stories come to life. I love the wild things and I love how you brought it to life. Your stories are good to watch for me because it helps me practice ASL. I hope one day in the near future I can bring them into my classroom and help children learn the asl.

I am a new librarian, and I'm always searching for ways to meet the needs of my deaf students. This is fantastic. Thank you so much! If anyone knows of sites that can help me help them, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
