How Can You Dance If You Can’t Hear the Music?
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be deaf? Sophie knows. She lives in a world without sound. Bright and determined, one day she excitedly tells her mother she wants to take a dance class. But dancing turns out to be less of a problem than dealing with the other dancers. Thanks to the efforts of the dance teacher, the class members transformation from doubting to understanding is as heartwarming as Sophie’s triumph with dance. Through Sophie’s Eyes is a wonderful book of inspiration for all children.
The book is beautifully illustrated, and includes finger spell diagrams.
