You Can Still Make a Splash Even If You Canít Hear It!
Sophie was already a strong swimmer and an accomplished dancer when she saw her cousin Gilly in a synchronized swimming performance. She instantly knew that was something she wanted to do. The fact that Sophie was deaf was not going to stand in her way, even though she couldnít hear the music. Learning the moves was easy. Getting the girls on the team to let her perform with them was another story. How the girls and Sophie handle the situation demonstrates how what appear to be challenges can be overcome.
Filled with rich, full color illustrations and sign language diagrams, the book is as beautiful as it is moving.
