Five Little Monkeys Jumping On the Bed DVD Review

Scholastic: Five Little Monkeys DVD Review



Synopsis: Building upon the popular trend of babies learning to communicate by sign language, Scholastic Storybook Treasures has launched a new American Sign Language DVD series helping to extend sign language learning for children ages 2 to 9.  The newest release, FIVE LITTLE MONKEYS JUMPING ON THE BED…AND MORE GREAT CHILDREN’S STORIES brings beloved children’s books to rich life with voice narration, sign language and catchy musical scores.  Stories include the title tale about everyone’s favorite primates, along with “Little Quack” and Mercer Meyer’s “There’s Something in My Attic”.  The DVD also includes sign language vocabulary, comprehension quizzes, alphabet fingerspelling and read-along.

Studies show that when children learn sign language at an early age they have increased language acquisition and educators often recommend sign language to help children develop fine motor skills.  The new DVD series has been created to enhance sign language learning and increase comprehension skills through vocabulary lessons and an interactive quiz for each story. 

From one of the most trusted brands in entertainment and education, this new series was developed by parents Missy Keast and her husband/partner Dave Victorson who are also ASL and education experts.  Keast was born deaf and is known as the “Shakespeare of Sign Language” because of her eloquent storytelling and communications skills.

Review: If you have a little one then most likely you've read Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed!  Its a fantastic little story that is one of many featured on this new DVD set from Scholastic!  Its always a struggle to find quality and safe children's programming.  Scholastic is a trusted name and definately one that we turn to often in our household.

The best thing about this DVD set is the new sign language feature.  Our kids are learning sign language in public school now and this DVD re-enforces a lot of that learning, plus gives deaf children and parents a great opportunity to enjoy.

Interest Range: Scholastic, Children's Stories, Sign Language
