Review:
From A Gator Ride to the Dentist Office is a unique video that entertains while it teaches. Peter Cook, a Deaf performer of international fame, masterfully intersperses simple stories with powerful communication instruction by combining American Sign Language with his own innovative pantomime interpretations. Young viewers will be enticed to mimic and practice Cook's close-up examples in each communication segment. Learners additionally gain a firsthand view of how a person with a disability uses his talents to make his life and the lives of others more positive.
