Product Description

1987 RANDOM HOUSE VHS: Little Red Riding Hood/Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Review

While the child with a hearing impairment is watching signed performances of up-to-date versions of such fairy tales as "Little Red Riding Hood" and "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," the hearing child is enjoying Elaine Branko's cheery voice-over narration. Children are also learning the rudiments of sign language. In this version, live actors perform against picture book backdrops. It's a jaunty production of two familiar stories that promote self-esteem, inclusiveness, and, above all, communication. A Parents' Choice Approval. (Diana Huss Green, Parents' Choice, 1999) -- From Parents' Choice®

Our entire family enjoys this video. My two year old son (with a moderate hearing impairment) watches, as do his parents who are trying to learn sign language. This is the best sign video I have found. Isolated signs are shown clearly before each story, and signs are seen in the context of simple sentences that tell the story.

My twin daughters..., borrowed this video several times from our public library. I enjoyed it just as much as them & found myself watching it each time as we picked up new signs to practice and learn.
Now, my ...year old has fallen in love with it too! She watches it sometimes 3x in a row and several times throughout the day ... as it IS her favorite video to watch. We decided to purchase our own so we wouldn't be hogging the Library's copy.
I only wish there were more!
I was sad to find out that there wasn't a whole series of these available!
We are a Hearing family but enjoy exposing our children as well as ourselves to everything possible and in turn have learned much.
There's many new adventures to experience!

We got this tape as a Christmas gift for our 3 year old boy, who is not hearing impaired but we are trying to introduce him to sign language with several books and tapes. It was a very pleasant surprise for us when we watched the tape; we were fearing it would turn out to be a little bit boring for him, but it was not only fun, he wanted to watch it several times and even learned a few signs the first day. It was also great for us, I found it very interesting and my husband and I ended up signing along with the stories. Linda Bove is great, the stories are loved by children and adults, the acting and the signing are simple, entertaining and easy enough for everybody. It is very easy to identify words such as "cold", "hot", "forest", "tall", "low", "girl", "wolf", "father", "mother", "baby", "bear" and many more. I would definitely recommend this tape to everyone interested in learning sign language or teaching their children.

My Son is 2 years old and profoundly deaf. We both highly recomend this video. Actually all three of my children do, I also have two hearing daughters, one 11 and one 5. My son's school has this video and they show it sometimes during his snack time. All of the children loved it, they sat still and were excited to see signing on the tv. My other two children could follow along easly because of the voice overs and learn new sign without really trying so hard. We plan on purchasing this for home.

I absolutely love this video (oh, and my daughter--20 months--likes it, too!) Linda takes the time to teach several signs before the story begins and you can pick up additional signs just by watching it over and over--which is a joy to do! We are a hearing family that is trying to learn sign language and this video is a real treat!

I bought this video when my daughter was 2. She is now 3 and still wants to watch it all the time. After the first time watching, she could do a number of signs. Her favorite was 'Wolf' from Little Red Riding Hood. She practices all the time. She now can do most the signs from the video.
Her little brother is just 20 months old. He's scared of the wolf, so he leaves the room until the Goldilocks part of the video starts. He likes to try to do the signs also. I expect him to have some figured out by the time he's 2.

When my son was diagnosed with a speech delay, the therapists recommended that we learn sign language to help him have another avenue of expression. Of all the materials I ordered to help me (and him!) learn this new language, this video has been the biggest hit. Unfortunately, our copy was recorded over while we were on vacation. So, our first priority when we returned home was to order another one. He loves the stories and had learned many new signs. TERRIFIC! I wish there were more like it. The Holistic Pediatrician.
