CLONG ROARBoy lived in a silent world and couldn't hear the fighting But. This is an excerpt of a review was originally published on my website Miss Jenny s ClassroomBoy lives a happy life in his village but the other villagers just don t know what to make of him He talks with his parents all the time but the villagers see his hands waving about and don t get it At the same time the King and the knights are fighting against a dragon who burnt down all the trees When Boy wanders off one day he finds himself in the middle of the fighting but what can Boy do when no one understandsI m going to say right off that I really really liked this bookI actually think I love this book A bit of history about me I have been self teaching myself AUSLAN since I was about 10 I don t get a lot of practice with it so it comes and goes So what does that have to do with the book The protagonist Boy is deaf and communicates through sign language This is actually the first book I have EVER seen for children that features such a character if there are please do enlighten me in the commentsBoy is such an everyday character he is shown as being no different than any other boy and when he chases the lizard into the middle of a fight it becomes very clear that communication is a BIG problem in the village and in the fight I feel that it is the focus on communication that really makes this book stand out and such a good choice for the classroom How many times do kids and adults get into arguments for something perceived rather than the truth of what happened

Boy could see the fear around him and how everyone would be much happier. Boy is a great fantasy read that is engaging and has a lesson of peace and acceptance to tell it s readers The protagonist is a deaf boy who ends a war in his kingdom by getting to the heart of the conflict rather than being distracted by all the noise in the situation The book is a good one on one and group read allowing the imagination to run wild while still having a grounded meaningful lesson children and adults can apply to everyday life The illustrations are large enough for group story time but the actual story is appropriate for ages four and up The text is also a great starting place for beginning readers wanting to practice decoding in a challenging manner most likely for ages seven and up I wish the author would have included signs in the book or dedicated two pages at the end of the book to teach readers some basic sign language so they too can have dancing hands and communicate with friends who cannot hear or speak
