Bible Story Books for Children in English and American Sign Language

Lutheran Friends of the Deaf is pleased to announce that the latest installment in the Bible Stories for Children series, God Saves Baby Moses, has been released. Plans for a companion DVD are in the works. Completed book/DVD packages to date include, The First ChristmasJesus Blesses the ChildrenJesus and the Deaf ManThe First Easter Day and Noah and the Big Flood. The books feature written language and illustrated American Sign Language (ASL), along with beautifully expressive artwork. On the DVDs, people who are Deaf sign the story along with accompanying voiceover of the text. Afterward, specific keywords from the story are finger spelled, followed by the specific sign for the word. Each DVD also features a song that is signed, along with signing of song keywords. Creation of the DVDs has been the work of The Deaf Professional Artists Network (D-PAN). The filming of companion DVDs for each of the currently available ASL books began earlier this year with production supported by a grant from the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML). Several years ago, LWML also provided a grant to assist LFD in initiating the publication of the books.

This unique series enables parents to teach their Deaf or hearing child about Jesus through American Sign Language, in addition to familiarizing them with the written English language. The Bible stories can also be used by Sunday school, Pre-school, day school or vacation Bible school teachers. American Sign Language or ASL is a distinct language – it is not English, or ‘gestures.’ Sign Languages used in the USA, China or other parts of the world are all very different from each other.

Other titles in development include:

A Book of Prayers • Daniel and the Lions • Feeding 5,000 • Samuel and God’s Call • Jesus and the Blind Man • The Three Men in a Fiery Furnace

A translation team developed the ASL translations for the stories and is also working on activity companion materials to include story reviews, catechetical instruction and children’s Christian songs and prayers. The Bible Stories will also be translated into other written and sign languages, such as Chinese, Spanish and Russian.
