You’ll see in some stories that we’ve added extra subtitles in red to enhance the story and bring the pictures to life.

In Owl Babies we make observations on how dark and scary the woods are



In Noah’s Ark we make reference to the food and animals in the ark.

This is common in storytelling with sign language, and the extra information will help in the teaching and learning of modern English vocabulary. It’s particularly helpful for storytelling with deaf children who use sign language and children learning English as a second language.

It’s good to ask your own questions and make your own observations when reading and watching online stories with your children – remember that you can pause the videos!
