Welcome home Judy and James!

Perhaps some of the "gobs of SignWriting data" could be made available on
our SignWriting Web Site as a resource for others. I will be glad to post
it for you and we can talk about it later, when I catch my breath.

I recently received this email message (see below). It seems your story in
Nicaraguan Sign Language on our SignWriting Web Site has gotten notice...

Dear Valerie Sutton,

that educators may use in the classroom and children

What Is Bonus.com?
******************
Bonus.com, the SuperSite for Kids - is a new service on the
World Wide Web, that is open, free of charge, to all visitors
at this WWW address:

http://www.bonus.com

Our funding will come from on-line advertiser sponsorships, much
like many other web publications that want to offer their content
free to visitors.

and hand-pick each work that Bonus.com presents within its
easy-to-use, kid-friendly environment.

Currently our visitors will find at Bonus.com selected works from
more than 1200 individual authors.

PS. Note from Valerie:
I visited their site and it is charming - many educational games that refer
to published works on the web. Our stories are not listed on their site
yet, because I just gave them permission. It will take a few days before
they are available. They also chose one other story from our web site,
Goldilocks and the Three Bears.


Valerie :-)
