Videobooks keeps growing

We started the second stage of the cyberlibrary with two new videobooks. The first stage was characterized by the selection of books for young readers focusing mainly on the quality of images and taking into account the simplicity of the books. We had an extremely positive impact both among children and teachers and also among society in general, children's books authors and publishers.

This second stage will focus on incorporating traditional tales and fables in Argentine Sign Language for deaf children. We believe that these tales serve as a vehicle to transmit values, to approach children to culture and to discuss ideas and experiences. We invited new deaf readers with whom we will select which versions of each story approaches most to its original version. Our second step will be to convince publishers and authors to cede their rights.

We hope to include a large number of books to give the children the possibility to select those they like the most. The right to choose is an important part of the objectives of this project and that is why we insist on incorporating a wide range of options.

We would like to start by thanking those who collaborate with this project and we trust that these products will encourage reading and will respect the rights of all children. We hope that in the long run this cyberspace will become a place to enjoy, imagine, dream and think through books.
