Calvin Can't Fly - an ASL Storybook

2 months 2 days ago

This message below is brought to you by our lovely SallyisSarah Productions Creator and boss: Sarah Michaelson! Sally Is Sarah Productions Please follow us! I was the middle child. I was always called ‘Sally’ growing up, so as to not be confused with other Sarah’s in the family. I was incredibly sensitive. Painfully shy. Words stuck in my throat and never seemed to be able to come out right. After college, when I started learning American Sign Language through friends at Gallaudet, expressing myself felt so different. There was a congruity, an authenticity, a whole-heartedness involved in conveying and receiving a message through sign language. I felt awkward, for sure, but I also found something in myself that was new. It was at Gallaudet that I decided to take back the name Sarah, the name felt more like me. Recently I started making films based on books with one goal in mind: Encouraging children to be who they are, no matter what their differences or communication style. Michael Herzovi suggested this name for my new business: "Sally Is Sarah Productions." The “Sally” in me flinched a little. But the Sarah in me loved it! So welcome to Sally Is Sarah Productions! Quick update: Calvin Can’t Fly – An ASL Storybook based on the book by Jennifer Berne, is being screened throughout the US. Red – A Crayon’s ASL Story, based on the book by Michael Hall, is in the works. Stay tuned for more! With love and gratitude, Sarah Image
