About Cat in the Hat
writing of Cat in the Hat in American
Sign Language is a remarkable document
by Cherie Wren, interpreter and teacher at
Georgia School for the Deaf. Cherie
signed the story in American Sign Language,
on video, and then wrote the story, from
the video, in SignWriting. Cat in the Hat
complicated English, and the translation
into American Sign Language was not easy.
But Cherie signed it in a dynamic way,
telling the story in ASL with delightful charm.
I know I watched it with excitement, to see
would happen at the end. It is no wonder
that it is a popular document, read by many
readers on the web, in three formats.
Cherie Wren has contributed a variety of children's
stories to the SignWriting
including Jack & Jill, Little Miss Muffet,
A Little Lamb, Itsy Bitsy Spider, Little Bo
Baa Baa Black Sheep, Hickory Dickory Dock,
Cat in the Hat and the Shurley Jingles.
All these stories can be read on the web.
