Book review: Exchange with the animal which uses sign language

September 5, 2016

In the colorfully picture story book titled "Hand Talk Zirafan," the mysterious animal, Zirafan, that uses sign language (hand talk) and the boy Mahr communicate with each other using   sign language, pictures and music vividly.

Kado Hidehiko, the author who is hearing born to his Deaf parents, began drawing a picture to clarify an idea in sign language when he was a boy.

The book is one full of pleasure to make you feel like learning sign language. (published by Shogakukan; 1400 yen)
