Hand Artists: Did You See What They Said? (Paperback)

Kyleigh loves visiting her best friend Erin and her family, the Barbers. They have interesting devices, like a doorbell that lights up the house and a telephone with a screen. Most of all, Kyleigh likes to watch the family make “art” as they communicate with their flying fingers. The Barbers are deaf, so they speak using American Sign Language (ASL) and teach Kyleigh how to use it–with plenty of humor! This book is an introduction to the highly distinctive language and culture of the Deaf community. But, more than anything, the stars of the story, Kyleigh and Erin, show that when friends want to understand each other, with a little effort they can easily overcome differences in communication. Especially when they speak from the heart.
