Actors from the Little Theatre of the Deaf are coming to Moses’ school, and Moses and his classmates are going to see a play! A class from another school joins them, and Moses is introduced to Manuel, who has just moved to the U.S. Manuel doesn’t know English or sign language yet. Moses, being deaf, knows how hard it can be when no one understands you, so he tries communicating with Manuel using body gestures, while also teaching him some simple signs. The book is written in English and American Sign Language (ASL). Detailed diagrams of the signs are included so that readers can learn along with Manuel.
