What if I can’t?

¿En qué dirección están las flores?

Por ahí, a 320 kilómetros.

¡¿Cómo voy a llegar tan lejos?!

Vas volando.

¿Puedo ire n avión?


¡Entonces no llegaré nunca!

Which way to the flowers?

That way. 200 miles.

How am I supposed to travel that far?!

You fly.

Can I take a plane?


Then I’ll never make it!

But one day, Maxy sees everyone rushing around, putting things in boxes. Someone says, “María is coming!” That night, Hurricane María roared ashore; there was thunder, lightning and lots of rain. Maxy was terrified! Finally, the power went out and the house and everything around it was completely dark. The next day when they went outside, they saw destroyed homes, flooded roads and knocked-down trees-including their beloved flamboyant!

Trembling and whining, he races under the bed!

Emma Every Day

I came across these Beginner Read books at work and I just had to share them!  The reason why I wanted to share these books is because that these fiction books is related to having a character who is is deaf that has a cochlear implant and uses American Sign Language.   It is so cool to see books that have deaf fictional characters in it.

Personal note:
Not all deaf people use American Sign Language or have a cochlear implant. 


There are four books in the set.  The illustrations are so cool.
