Dina The Deaf Dinosaur

Drawing upon feelings from her own childhood, author Carole Addabbo, who has been deaf since birth, tells the endearing story of Dina, a deaf dinosaur, who runs away from home because her parents would not let her learn sign language. In the woods, she befriends Otto the Owl, Moliere the Mole, and Camilla the Chipmunk. Illustrated with detailed and imaginative original watercolors by Valentine, this is a story for all children and their families, whether they are deaf or can hear, that communication is key to family harmony.
