Description

Product Description

Isaac Millman tells Moses Goes to a Concert in pictures and written English, and in American Sign Language (ASL), introducing hearing children to the signs for some of the key words and ideas.

Moses and his school friends are deaf, but like most children, they have a lot to say. They communicate in American Sigh Language, using visual signs and facial expressions. This is called signing. And even though they can''t hear, they can enjoy many activities through their other senses. Today, Moses and his classmates are going to a concert. Their teacher, Mr. Samuels, has two surprises in store for them, to make this particular concert a special event.

You can learn sign language, too! At the end of the book are two full conversations in sign language and a page showing the hand alphabet.

Review

“[An] upbeat story.” ―School Library Journal

“Millman''s story, illustrated in delicate watercolors, ought to pop open a few young eyes (and perhaps some adult eyes as well) . . . The power of Millman''s book comes from the simple fact that he levels the playing field; of course deaf children go to concerts, but conveying how they enjoy music removes yet one more barrier between those who can hear and those who cannot.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Works so well that you wonder why there aren''t lots more books like it . . . Deaf children will welcome this joyful story that talks, without condescension, about the fun they have. Hearing kids, too, will want to learn some of the sign language, and with the help of an adult, they can practice the hand alphabet shown at the back of the book.” ―Starred, Booklist

“Moses is deaf. . .When he goes with his deaf classmates to a concert, they hold balloons in their laps to feel the vibrations. The percussionist in the orchestra is also deaf...and after her wild, wonderful performance, she meets the deaf children, tells them her story (in ASL), and then allows them to try out all her instruments. . .[A] breakthrough picture book.” ―Starred, Booklist

About the Author

I see this as a 2nd grade and up book. It''s a bit too long for my younger D/HH students unless I''m abbreviating it. I appreciate having books in my classroom that show being D/HH as normal.

I have read a few of these books to my inclusion kindergarten class and the students LOVE them. At the end of each book it teaches you something in ASL (a song, the alphabet). Great for all the kids in the class.

I recommend this book to any teachers or parents who want to teach their children about diversity. Deafness is still not well understood, and this is a good way to raise awareness with children that Deaf people are really no different than those who can hear. There is sign language taught throughout the book which makes it even more engaging to read. The story is sweet and teaches children that they can work hard to accomplish their dreams regardless of disabilities.

What a wonderful story so gentle, and informative. Very important that children old and young, even adults read this. It will give them a better understanding as to what it''s like to be disabled.
