Deaf people can do anything that hearing people can do. The 24-page children's book Carl Makes a Plan, part of the Carl Can series, promotes positive perspectives on social/emotional issues and shows how Carl plans an entire birthday party for his friend using methods that suit his needs.
The 24-page fiction book also includes a "words to know" vocabulary list and comprehension questions to keep the learning going. Carl was introduced in our Katie Can series, based on our best-selling book of the same title. In the story, Katie becomes friends with her early-elementary classmate Carl through her familiarity with basic ASL. We are continuing with Carl's story in the new and inclusive Carl Can series. This children's book was reviewed by Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services.
