readers into the world of a young hearing boy and his deaf parents as they
explore Brooklyn and Coney Island on a summer day in the 1930s.
There is much to
hear and see on the bright and busy day, but as much as his father wishes to understand
the multitude and variety of sounds all around them, his son struggles to find
the right words to explain each one to his father.
However, when they visit the library on their way home, the
young boy discovers that the words to describe the sound of all things may be
within his reach after all.
With the rich illustrations of Ted Papoulas and the carefully
crafted words of Myron Uhlberg, readers will see, hear, and love The Sound of All Things. Coming out this spring, March 1st, don’t miss this beautiful story
of family and discovery.
