I raised a deaf child and what I loved about this book is how right the author got what deaf children go through growing up trying to communicate with others and trying to find their "people" when they live around mostly hearing friends and family. I wish this story was around when my daughter was growing up, I think she would have loved it. The author's notes on deafness and sign language are accurate, too.

A sweet & inspiring story about a young deaf girl how is trying to help a whale that can not speak to other whales. For fans of Holly Goldberg Sloan and Lynda Mullaly Hunt.

Children's fiction. Very sweet story of a deaf child and her need to feel a part of something. Great relationship with grandma. Took an interesting adventure with grandma to fulfill her need.
