This young reader’s, chapter book is based on the relationship between Rosa and her granddaughter, Sandra. Together, they begin with rhyming games and use the internet to learn how to sign with their fingers. Sandra, demonstrates each step, and teaches the reader as well. The story line expands when Sandra meets a deaf child named Thomas, and other children, while at the park with Grandma.
Look, I Can Talk with My Fingers has an outstanding layout and over all appearance. The steps to begin basic signing are well explained. The illustrations are plentiful and professional done. It is both, an educational and story book. I can see this widely used in school libraries.
Book Review: Nancy M. Rollins – Author of “It’s All about the Chirp, Snap and Quack”
Sandra and her grandmother have a special bond. That bond is jeapordized when grandma's hearing goes bad. Read how one little girl teaches her grandmother, her family, and her friends, how to relate to someone who is hearing impaired.
A must read for the young and old. You're never to old to learn as Author Erika Szabo shows us in this bestselling book.
Soon grandma and granddaughter are learning how to sign together, and when they notice what fun their daughter is having, her parents even join in.
Then one sunny day Sandra meets a little boy called Thomas who is deaf, he is sad and lonely because of his disability. Befriending him, he tells her he can lip read and soon he is no longer lonely, he is joining in with her friends, and teaching the other children how to sign.
This is a lovely story which delivers important lessons in a wonderful way. Through Sandra’s acceptance of her grandma’s problem and positive attitude to overcoming the difficulties, the reader is taught valuable lessons about friendship, support and helping people with a disability fit into the community.
I downloaded this with my Kindle Unlimited subscription as my grandchildren are hear and their granddad is hard of hearing. They loved listening to it, and we had fun together practicing the signing which is in the book. A real gem of a book!
When Sandra’s grandmother gets sick and loses some of her hearing it seems like the end of their great daily conversations. Then Sandra finds a website that tells the different hand positions for letters in sign language. This leads to a wonderful learning experience that brings the whole family closer together and leads to new friendships.
Overall a fun read and a fun learning experience that kids and families should enjoy.
I learned how to say mouse in sign language and many other words. I really liked this book, especially the mouse.
Grandma Rosa was sweet. Even though she was hearing impaired, she overcame that with the help of doctors and her granddaughter, Sandra.
Sandra helped her grandma a lot. She looked up online how to sign. So, when her grandma couldn’t hear her words, she could see them! She was excited to learn how to say words with her hands. Her parents learned too and made it fun and easier to talk to grandma.
Sandra also made friends with a little boy on the playground who was deaf. When her friends made fun of him, she went over and talked/signed to him. That’s when she learned his name was Thomas. We need more friends like Sandra! After she introduced him to her friends, they liked him too.
Someone who is different is not stupid or scary. They’re just different. All of us are different and that’s what makes us interesting!
This is a great book for young children. I would recommend it 100%
