Thank you

Thanks a Lot! (1995) by Lucille R. Kraiman
Reading level: Ages 4-8
Paperback: 86 pages
Publisher: Butte Publications

Although this book is over a decade old, its message is perfect for today. Main character, Jordan, is used to attending a school where he uses sign language. Now that he has moved to a new school where he will need to use speech, will he fit in? And, will he be included in the Thanksgiving play?

I want to thank you for visiting my blog. It has certainly been a wonderful year--bigger and better than I even expected. I have met so many wonderful readers and authors along the way. I am truly grateful.

For those of you new to this blog, here is a recap of some of the exciting features. First, check out the 100+ and Counting List which includes adolescent literature books with Deaf Characters that is now up to 165 books! I continually update this list but don't move the post from the February 17, 2007 date. You can find the list by scrolling down on the right to the section entitled Blog Archives. Here is the link as a quick reference. 165 (and counting) Adolescent Literature Books with Deaf Characters
