A children book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, is translated into three versions by Charles Katz.
One thing that needs to be mentioned is that you will see some ASL classifiers in the word for word version (or transliteration - from text to English sign order). This version was signed in 1995. I found it very interesting to notice that I inserted ASL classifiers in my straight English signing. It reflected a couple of things. I could not keep to just signing each word alone - too dry. It shows how natural ASL grammar filtered into my English sign order. When I sign more books, I will attempt to keep to word for word signing and save ASL classifiers for either free and/or literal translations.
Enjoy watching how the hungry caterpillar lick and chew its way to butterflyhood. Click away . . .
