Bright, breezy original music by Randy Hale provides the soundtrack for all three stories, emphasizing their tone. DVD extras include vocabulary for each story and ASL demonstration of the signs for many of the nouns and verbs. There are also mini-quizzes that test comprehension, and a presentation of the American Sign Language alphabet.
Bottom Line: Would I buy Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed? Yes—the stories are fun and I am particularly in favor of children learning sign language. It’s the one language that can be communicated concurrently with their native language—that’s pretty cool!
