Amazon Says: A mother and daughter spend a sunny day at the beach together where they swim, dance, build sandcastles, and, most importantly, communicate. But their communication is not spoken; rather, it is created by loving hands that use American Sign Language. Readers will learn how to sign 15 words using American Sign Language with the help of sidebars that are both instructive and playful. And the beautifully illustrated beach scenes will appeal both to the deaf community and to hearing parents and children, who will enjoy this gentle introduction to some basic words in ASL. Hands & Hearts is a picture book unlike any other, revealing the special bond between mother and child. Praise for Hands & Hearts "A memorable excursion." --Kirkus Reviews "The book is recommended for libraries with an interest in ASL, and those in need of beach-themed picture books for the mommy-and-me crowd." --School Library Journal less...
