Library Lines: Videos feature children's books recorded in ASL – Yahoo News

Enjoy videos of popular children’s books, recorded in both English and American Sign Language, anytime, anywhere, by watching them on the Worthington Libraries YouTube channel, youtube.com/worthingtonlibraries.
Presented in partnership with Ohio Citizens for Deaf Cultures, the project was funded through a federal Institute of Museum and Library Services LSTA grant, awarded by the State Library of Ohio.
Worthington Libraries staff members were responsible for selecting and reading the books, as well as ca• pturing and editing video footage, while the OCDC provided the ASL interpreters. The video playlist includes the following stories:
• “Fry Bread” by Kevin Noble Maillard: The Native American tradition of sharing fry bread during family meals is celebrated in this story about family, history, culture and traditions, both new and old.
• “I Broke My Trunk” by Mo Willems: Gerald tells Piggie the long, crazy story about breaking his trunk. Will Piggie end up with a long, crazy story of her own?
• “I Promise” by LeBron James: This lively and inspiring picture book reminds readers that tomorrow's success starts with the promises we make to ourselves and our community today.
• “Jabari Tries” by Gaia Cornwall: Jabari is inventing a flying machine, but making it go from crash to whoosh will take grit, patience and maybe even a little help from his sister.
• “Lola Loves Stories with Daddy” by Anna McQuinn: Lola loves to hear Daddy read a new library book each night, an activity that spurs her imagination and results in inventive play the next day.
• “Natsumi” by Susan Lendroth: The festival of traditional Japanese arts is coming up, and little Natsumi's big personality is too much for her family's quieter traditions, until her grandfather introduces her to taiko drumming.
• “There's A Giraffe in My Soup” by Ross Burach: Each time a waiter returns with a new bowl of soup to satisfy a customer's complaint, a different animal appears in it.
“We Don’t Eat Our Classmates” by Ryan T. Higgins: When the class pet bites the finger of Penelope, a Tyrannosaurus rex, she finally understands why she should not eat her classmates, no matter how tasty they are.
