It’s a different kind of ABC book.
Along with learning the alphabet in ASL, the letters are tied in to notable names of ASL history with a glossary in the back.
“The Manual Alphabet with Death Hands,” is an illustrated print and eBook in a bilingual format that can be enjoyed by readers of both languages. The choice of title, “Death Hands,” is a play on a common mistake made by speakers of English confusing the word “deaf,” with “death.” Unfortunately, yours truly had his English essay corrected with “death” replacing every “deaf” I wrote once during his junior year and the memory always stuck with me.
Wonderful video showing in real time what we're reading. And a mini-history lesson on ASL to boot. Should be in every school, so kid friendly.
We love it! Great to use it for halloween! ❤
