I'm super-excited to share a collaborative video read-aloud of our book, The Wall and the Wild.
In a plot of land at the edge of town, Ana strives to grow the “perfect” garden. To keep it that way, she throws all the irregular shoots and uneven seeds into the disorderly Wild and builds a wall to protect her own tidy plot. But as her garden gets more constrained, the Wild begins to grow …
Watch as Anne L. with Miami Valley Interpreters, LLC, in Dayton, Ohio, brings to life Ana's story in a beautifully expressive way! Thank you for this phenomenal interpretation, Anne!

Other great sources for ASL read-alouds include:
