Rachel and the Treeschoolers

Friday, May 30th, 2014

As our two little girls have been growing, one of the great things we tried as young parents was teaching both our girls sign language (ASL) at a young age. We were introduced to the Baby Signing Time collection by Two Little Hands Productions, and found it to be a great system for teaching our young ones signs that they could use even before they started talking. Now that they’re growing, there’s more advanced Signing Time videos, but also that same team is launching a new product line, Rachel and the Treeschoolers. We funded their Kickstarter the first time around, and were very happy with the result. The first Kickstarter campaign funded the first six videos, and now they’re doing it again!

Click here to join in on their next round of Kickstarter funding to continue the Treeschoolers series. If you’d like, they’re currently offering one full episode for free on YouTube to preview: TreeSchoolers Ep. 1: A RAINY DAY. Check it out, and we hope you’ll help fund them too, to create more of these great educational resources!

Now, I’ve been working with the Adobe Creative Suite (including Photoshop and Illustrator) for over a decade now, and some of the claims by other “experts” I am quite offended they choose to label themselves as “experts”. I’ll leave the other points of interest (smudges in various boxes, “African” vs. “Negro” as race, etc.) for others, but I can speak to the graphic qualities. Let’s break it down:
