A picture's worth a thousand words, which is why they're a great tool for helping to tell stories. Use the signs you know to explain what's happening in your child's favourite picture books.

Storytelling using pictures

Here's a short comic strip all about a very hungry dog. Watch how our storyteller uses simple signs and gestures to explain what is happening in each picture.

See how he uses facial expressions to show that the dog was feeling hungry and that mum was angry.

To help you get started, take a look at Daisy and Ted's Awesome Adventures and Jake and Jasmine to the Rescue.
