A day at a school for the deaf is like a day at any school

Moses goes to a special school, a public school for the deaf. He and all of his classmates are deaf or hard-of-hearing, but that doesn't mean they don't have a lot to say to each other! They communicate in American Sign Language (ASL), using visual signs and facial expressions. Isaac Millman follows Moses through a school day, telling the story in pictures and written English, and in ASL, introducing hearing children to the signs for some of the key words and ideas. At the end is a favorite song -- "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" -- in sign!

Praise for Moses Goes to School

"Moses, who debuted in Moses Goes to a Concert, is back. Here, he and his classmates, all of whom are deaf or hard of hearing, head back to their special school after summer break . . . Child-friendly cartoon illustrations do a marvelous job of emphasizing the normalcy and charm of these youngsters." -Starred, School Library Journal
