coolKIDS Preview G: German and American Version

fingeralphabet coolKIDS Gs

Very often signs look quite similar on first sight, only to show subtle differences, when you give them a closer look.

In the coolKIDS illustrations above, you can see the difference between the German (left) and the American (right) sign for the letter “G”.

The coolKIDS illustrations are part of a project for children who are confronted with the sign language alphabet at a later point in their life.

There is a lot of material out there for very young children, and then there is the more neutral material for adults. So far I have seen little of interest between these two aspects, especially not for young people in the age where hero figures become more important and self valor and self-esteem are questioned for the first time.

I hope that the coolKIDS manage to fill this gap in a meaningful way, by providing material that celebrates the hand signs as something cool to know for kids of all backgrounds. A knowledge, that is supposed to make you more rather than less interesting.

Two digital books are being prepared right now by LegendaryMedia and myself: a German and an American version of the Fingeralphabet coolKIDS.
