One TV Blasting And A Pig Outdoors

In a positive, upbeat manner, a boy tells about what it’s like to have a deaf father. Lip reading, sign language, discrimination, TTY (teletypewriter), and other electronic means of communication are explained in the fictionalized narrative, and a two-page glossary is included. Humorous happenings and mishaps show a man who views deafness not as a handicap, but as a challenge, and lend immediacy to a topic that otherwise might not capture the interest of most children.
