An ABC of finger Spelling & Sign Language. The book shows two ways you can talk besides using your voice: Fingerspelling, forming words letter by letter with the fingers of one hand, Making a picture or sign with your hands for each word or idea. You can also talk with your eyes, your face, your hands, your body.
Gifted photographer George Ancona visited Austin, Texas, to capture the very places and things Mrs. Jackson writes about so evocatively. Together, author and photographer have succeeded in recreating cherished bits of a particular American past.
