Does she not remind you of Halle Berry? Actually, she did so even more without here extravagant superhero suit.
She is showing two of the many variations for the number 3 – I’m adding the numbers 0-10 in the eBooks for added value in case you did not know. And so 11 more cool KIDS stepped forward to show them.
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.
