Overview

VL2 released the first of its planned ASL/English storybook apps, The Baobab, in early 2013. The research-based design of storybook apps will encourage children to be immersed in a bilingual environment, with ASL storytelling and active vocabulary words.

Selected vocabulary comes with video components, including signed and fingerspelled words. Storybook apps are designed for iOS, and run on all iPad versions. More stories are forthcoming, such as “The Airplane Who Could” and “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”.

Development is underway for an Author App Program; a website portal, which allows developers and educators to download code and assets to build their own bilingual and interactive storybook apps.
