The image at left is an illustration of The Very Hungry Caterpillar book by Eric Carle from the Carle Museum. We have children's stories retold in ASL published by several schools: Kansas School for the Deaf, California School for the Deaf, and Atlanta Area School for the Deaf (partnership with Scholastic). Deaf community members, faculty, and students are featured in the videos, depending on the school. California School for the Deaf videos have captions you can turn on. Most videos (1st floor Deaf Media) and companion print books (3rd floor) are in the PZ call number area.
There are multi-level videos/stories and different genres such as folktales, fairy tales, fables, tall tales, Caldecott Award winners, popular children's literature stories, and holiday stories. Use the library catalog below to find books and videos. Type the author or title of the book using the keyword search and add the term 'deaf' if looking for signed stories.
You can look for video/book titles below using the RIT Libraries catalog.If you are interested in online collections such as Tumblebooks and BookFlix (animated, voiced, and captioned children's books) go to the websites tab to explore. If you are a New York resident, you can apply for a library card which gives you access to hundreds of databases, including Tumblebooks and BookFlix. You also receive discounts or free admission to museums.
