Send Me a Sign - Making Friends with the Deaf (Grades 3-6)
Written by: Jennifer Magee
Illustrated by: Liliane Grenier
When Faith approaches a new student on the first day of school and gets no response, she thinks she is being ignored. As she soon finds out, Shanti is actually deaf, and is in the same class as Faith! Daily lessons in sign language and Miss Sybil's inspiring art projects launch a powerful friendship, as well as class-wide awareness on student diversity and how to make friends with the deaf. Readers will learn several words in sign language with instructional pictures throughout the story, and will also learn a poem at the end of the story teaching complete phrases in sign language they would wish to say to a deaf person they meet.
