A Virtual Little Library for Staying Connected—V. My Deaf Friend Can Do Anything You Can Do!
Curated by Dr. Taucia González and Hunter Brown, this Equity Spotlight Vodcast Series is a collection of picture books read aloud by community members, chosen specifically to show the diversity of our schools and communities. These read-alouds are a way for us all to stay connected while also supporting our children while they are unable to attend school.
My Deaf Friend Can Do Anything You Can Do is a Black-centered children’s book for all ages that celebrates tolerance and acceptance. This story features a young deaf girl and her hearing friend who convey a tale about the misunderstandings of people who are deaf or hard of hearing. This book helps readers to clearly understand that deaf people can do the same tasks that others can do—providing a better, more accurate understanding of a deaf person’s life, abilities, and talents.
