Item description for Can You Hear a Rainbow?: The Story of a Deaf Boy Named Chris (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago Learning Book) by Jamee Riggio Heelan & Nicola Simmonds...
Overview A deaf child tells how he uses sign language, hearing aids, and his other senses to communicate, how his friends help him, and how he goes to public school with an interpreter.
Publishers Description When Chris was a baby, his parents realized that he didn't notice the dog barking or a door slamming. Through a series of tests, doctors determined that he was deaf. In this intriguing, reassuring book, Chris tells young readers about what it is like to be deaf and describes typical events in his life and the ways he has adjusted to his hearing loss. With sign language, speech therapy, and an interpreter, Chris's days are much like those of hearing children, filled with classes, soccer games, and children's theater. Accompanied by Simmonds' vivid and energetic multimedia paintings, Heelan's text explores the world of a real child and answers the questions many children may have about hearing loss.
