Summary

Linda Bove, the deaf actress all children know and love from Sesame Street, introduces children to a new way of communicating - American Sign Language. First Linda teaches some simple signs, then she and three other performers act out two familiar fairy tales using these signs. Both hearing impaired and hearing children will enjoy the stories because, in addition to the sign language, there is narration, action, and original music throughout. The live actors perform in an artwork setting, giving this unique video a charming storybook look.
