Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy has been transformed into the first-ever iPad app for deaf children.
The highly anticipated app has been released following its success as a children's DVD with sign language, and author Tina Turbin is proud to state that the profits from the sales of the app are donated to her favorite causes - including children's literacy.
Carol Downing, Associate Director/Teacher at Blossom Montessori School for the Deaf, and a Nationally-certified sign language interpreter stated:
In an outstanding show of compassion Tina has produced her entire book on DVD along with the addition of a sign language interpreter for deaf children. As an educator of the deaf, I appreciate her attention to this often overlooked and underserved population. The innovation of adding a sign language interpreter to her DVD was not only brilliant and appreciated, but it stands as strong proof that she truly creates from her heart.
