Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed is a classic children’s book. Our children were raised with this story and finger play, as well as the first grade classes I taught in public school. This book also comes with a DVD featuring an adult telling the story in sign language. There is voice narration as the illustrations from the book are also shown. This book and DVD set is available on the Scholastic site as well as Amazon.
There are nine stories on the DVD, ending with There’s Something in My Attic” by Mercer Mayer. The DVD also has vocabulary for each story, ASL demonstration of the signs for some of the nouns and verbs, mini-quizzes for comprehension, and a presentation of the American Sign Language alphabet.
