The Smart Princess

BY WRITERS AND ILLUSTRATORS who are Deaf themselves, this collection of stories for readers under nine provides humorous insights into the lives of Deaf children. In one tale a Princess runs away when her intolerant aunt does not allow her to sign. Another story looks at the experience of a Deaf child at a hearing school. Two strangers, one giant and one tiny, become friends even when they seem so very different from one another in a third illustrated piece. A spaceship lands on a planet where everyone signs and an imaginary tiger plays havoc in two more stories. Beautifully illustrated with a full color image for each story, this collection is by winners of a national competition called the Ladder Awards, organized by the Canadian Cultural Society of the Deaf.
Product Details


"A welcome relief from pabulum children s literature that blandly patronizes, paternalizes and pathologizes deaf children. What a celebration of deaf cultural values deaf pride in the deaf identity, the love of sign language, the importance of going to deaf schools and chatting with deaf friends. These sense-filled stories contain the visual, olfactory and kinesthetic where sight, color, smells and motion abound."-- (01/01/2008)
