Moses Goes to a Circus

Experience the Big Apple’s Circus of the Senses

Moses and his family are going to the circus. Not just any 
circus but the Big Apple’s Circus of the Senses! In a single ring, there are acts by trapeze artists, acrobats, elephants, horses, and clowns – all specially designed for the deaf and hard-of-hearing and the blind. Moses’s little sister, Renee, isn’t deaf but is learning sign language, and Moses loves teaching her the signs for their day at the circus.

Isaac Millman takes readers on a wonderful outing in pictures and written English and in American Sign Language (ASL). Detailed diagrams of the signs are included so that readers can learn along with Renee.
