Developer's Description


Interactive and bilingual ASL/English storybook app designed for visual learners, especially deaf children between the ages of 3 and 7, and their families.

Based on a classic Russian story, the app covers storytelling in sign language and print.


The classic Slavic folk tale The Giant Turnip takes on new life as a tool for bilingual education of deaf and hard of hearing children!
