Talking Hands: A Sign Language Video For Children [VHS]

Talking Hands: A Sign Language Video For Children [VHS]

Kids gobble cookies, blow bubbles, open and close a box of dress-up items, even sit on the potty to illustrate some of the 31 hand gestures taught throughout this excellent sign language video. Much like a mini video "dictionary," teaching focuses on word recognition alone--not the alphabet nor on full sentence structure--and covers a smart variety of simple verbs and nouns (based on American Sign Language and Signing Exact English). The format is simplistic but highly effective, and keeps the action moving. After the word appears on-screen, an adult carefully signs and pronounces it twice. Then, scenes flip open like book pages or spin like revolving doors to reveal several real-life examples; for instance, "grandfather" fishes with his grandson, eats cereal, and reads a book. More hand gesture repetition, performed by a culturally diverse group of grownups and kids, offers lots of practice time. Probably best used in the home or in a hearing classroom, this visually and audibly appealing 40-minute show comes from the folks who created Parent's Choice award-winning Baby's First Impressions series. --Liane Thomas

Kelly Sue & Henry Leo (in papoose thingy)

Kelly Sue & Henry Leo (in papoose thingy)

My life is, of late, strange, to say the least. And it appears to be on a steady upswing of strangeness.

I have known of the existence of Kelly Sue for years. She is part of a constellation of people who orbit the comic book industry. She herself is a comic book writer, her friends are artists, and her husband is also a writer.

Up until a few years ago, I placed all these people on the same level I would a Will Smith or a Stephen King.

They are talented celebrities I will never meet, but, due to the nature of celebrity these days, will still know things about.

I know who Kelly Sue is married to, what city she lives in, the name of her little son. All without ever having met her.

This is normal.

But then friends of mine make inroads into the comic book industry, become familiar and then friends with many of the creators whose work I follow.

Next thing I know, I'm walking from our condo to the convention center because several of my friends have yet to meet Kelly Sue's new son. Because they know Kelly Sue.

I do not know Kelly Sue. But I am incredibly aware of Kelly Sue. Her husband has mentioned her many times in the backmatter of his comics.

It is a disconnect that makes me incredibly uncomfortable.

On the one hand I would love to meet Kelly Sue. Because I like her work.

Yet, she is not her work. I do not know her. I know facts, not a person. And why should I want to meet facts. There is a dissonance.

And this occurs several times during the convention, where I am introduced to people I know from their work only. Who are now not talents in their field but actual people who drink and swear and lose their glasses.

I fight the urge to impress, to show off or in some other way draw positive attention to myself. I, as they say, lay in the cut, trying to act normal.

There is one part of my brain that says "who cares, they're just people."

This side wars with the other, which counters, "no, you idiot, that's the guy who wrote Doom Patrol, and that other guy created Casanova, and this dude standing in front of you CREATED BUFFY."

Which is all a very roundabout way of saying while at SDCC I met Kelly Sue and her son. She was laid back despite being a new mom (a circumstance I have seen drive parents apeshit crazy), and blew my mind with the fact that they were teaching the little man sign language, which apparently is very big now. I am obviously out of the nanny loop. She is now an actual person in my mind, a person I think well of, as she was surrounded by several people and still a)remembered briefly meeting me the night before, b)was kind and forthcoming in conversation with, despite our introduction by mutual friends, someone who was still a virtual stranger and c) was appropriately impressed by the fact that I carry a Polaroid camera everywhere.

Yes, I was a nanny.

Yes, this was long.

And yes, it is over. Go about your business, while I continue to bask in the weirdness.

this is from an assignment i shot this week about babies and toddlers being taught sign language
this tot's mom teaches sign language, and while she's 2 1/2 now, she's been signed to since she was born and signing since she was 7 months old. her first language was sign language.

(for those of you who haven't heard of babies signing: figuring out how to use your mouth at first is pretty tricky, and sign language --i.e. signs for words like more and juice and milk-- helps babies communicate before their mouths have figured out how to shape words and that eases a lot of frustration for them)

this photo really has nothing to do with any of that, as you can see, but she was a delightful little distraction during the interview
we played while the reporter and her mom and dad talked
i might have even encouraged the throwing of a toy airplane at the reporter while he was working. might have.

so, while this outtake photo isn't really that strong (i debated between posting this or a tighter, stiller shot of her looking at bubbles pre-pop--- and everyone i asked chose the other one), i like it.
not because it's good, but because it makes me feel good.

so yea, it's kinda blurry and messy and distracting and the windows are blown out and yadda yadda (i've already heard it)
but it's joyful
and y'know, that's good enough for my memory.
