Storytelling in sign language @ NLB

A fairytale at Ang Mo Kio NLB

Why did children, parents, and families show up for this annual SADeaf X National Library Board (NLB) collaboration?

“Get ready to enter the magical world of storytelling in sign language during the school holidays! Join us at public libraries across Singapore on November 5th and December 3rd, 10th, and 16th. Bring your kids, parents, families, and friends for an unforgettable experience! We’ll be retelling classic tales like Rapunzel, the Giving Tree, and The Little Mermaid, all in sign language with the help of a voice interpreter. Not only will you learn new vocabulary words, but you’ll also get to see the children immerse themselves in role-playing after listening to the stories. And at the end of it all, everyone will be rewarded with a special Merdeaf badge for their hard work and effort in learning sign language and for trying out the performance. See you there!”

And that’s why! Check out the photos!
