Hello everyone, I hope you and your colleagues find this useful -- the animation of the Eagle Books is on the internet for viewing and we will get the full featured animimation of the Eagle Books on DVD's out for distribution by the end of August if all goes as planned. Please let me know if you have questions. We look forward to seeing everyone in a few weeks in Atlanta. ~ Cherryll
CDC -TV is currently making the soon to be released animated version of all 4 Eagle Books available for viewing on the internet at http://www.cdc.gov/CDCTV/ (To view the closed captions click on the balloon once the books open)
The animated version of the Eagle Book series (Through the Eyes of the Eagle, Knees Lifted High, Plate Full of Color, and Tricky Treats) has been created for availability on DVD from the Native Diabetes Wellness Program (NDP), Division of Diabetes Translation (DDT), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The DVD can be used in many ways as an interactive tool with parents, teachers and communities to engage children in activities and discussions about healthy eating and the joy of being active while looking to traditional ways to stay healthy and prevent type 2 diabetes.
The author of the original Eagle Books, Georgia Perez, provides the narration for the animated videos. Children and adults from the Standing Rock Sioux tribal nation bring the book characters alive with their creative voice talent. The DVD has many special features including:
Three American Indian language translations (Chickasaw, Paiute, Shoshone)
Closed Captioning (CC) and Video Descriptions (for the Deaf/Hard of Hearing/Blind and Visually Impaired)
Information about the author and illustrators
Resources for children, parents, teachers and communities
To assist teachers and parents the DVD can be stopped and started for listening to elders, demonstrating fun ways to be active, describing the many colored fruits and vegetables from Mother Earth, and deciding what is a “sometimes” or “everyday” food selection. Teachers and parents may also find the DVD can be used as a read-along tool to accompany the print copies of the Eagle Books.
Join the fun and watch the Eagle Books characters come alive on the DVD and the internet today.
If you have quesions about the animation please contact Cherryll Ranger chr4 at cdc.gov
***The full featured Eagle Book animation series on DVD will be available after August 2008 for distribution through CDC-INFO www.cdc.gov,
1-800-CDC-INFO and the Indian Health Service online ordering system.
