 Fourth in an acclaimed series using crisp, appealing photos to introduce American Sign Language through the activities of children at a school for the deaf. A day's cycle is shown here, including meals, sports, and a holiday play. The use of time or multiple exposure to indicate movement can be confusing (it's not always possible to tell in which direction hands are moving); otherwise, an excellent addition. (Nonfiction/Picture book. 4-11)
