A new website of videoclips of 1001 children books translated into American Sign language by Charles Katz for parents, school libraries, and any other interested people and groups is here now. Now, parents have FREE resource on the internet to show ASL of children books to their deaf AND hearing children. A long time dream of mine to translate one thousand and one children books into ASL is now being realized thanks to vblog technology, computers, and youtube.
Each post will have between 2 to 4 ASL translations of a children book. They are word for word, literal, free, and visual gestural translations. Word for word is signing each word approximately. Literal is translating only the text into ASL. Free is translating the text and the images. Visual gestural is translating into something natural - visual gestural - old to us but something different for others. See for yourself.
The list at your right is the books being posted in order until 1001 books have been translated and posted.
