I got an email from Adele Hopper that read:


Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know about a brand new interactive project bringing the best children’s literature to deaf children. www.signedstories.com is beautifully animated fully interactive website backed by stage, screen, sporting and literary icons including the Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen and sponsored by some of the UK biggest publishers – with 70 more stories to be added this year.

Attached is our press release and logo. Please contact me if you would like any more information

Kind regards

I checked out the site, and watched the story ‘Not now, Bernard’ (here). I think they did a marvellous job. It all looks really nice, it works well, and I would guess that this is going to provide many happy hours to deaf children and their parents. I wish someone in the Netherlands would pick up on this initiative and copy it for Dutch deaf children.
