Overview

A lively performance by the Little Theatre of the Deaf

Actors from the Little Theatre of the Deaf are coming to Moses' school, and Moses and his classmates are going to see a play! A class from another school joins them, and Moses is introduced to Manuel, who has just moved to the United States. Manuel doesn't know English or sign language yet. Moses, being deaf, knows how hard it can be when no one understands you, so he tries communicating with Manuel using body gestures, while also teaching him some simple signs.

This delightful book about Moses incorporates clear and colorful pictures, written English, and American Sign Language (ASL). Detailed diagrams of the signs are included so that readers can learn along with Manuel.

A Junior Library Guild Selection

Moses and his classmates, who are deaf or hard of hearing, attend a play at their school, and Moses makes a new friend from another class.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In the fourth in the series that began with Moses Goes to a Concert, Moses Sees a Play, Isaac Millman blends how-to diagrams of American Sign Language with the deaf hero's continuing story. Here a new boy joins Moses's school and the whole class sees a performance of Cinderella, acted by the Little Theatre of the Deaf. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
A performance in American Sign Language of Cinderella by the Little Theater for the Deaf is coming to Moses's school and a class from another school has been invited to join them. Moses, who is deaf, meets Manuel who recently arrived from Mexico and does not know English. Without a formal language, they communicate with gestures and find out they both play baseball and have lots more in common. They enjoy watch the play. The five actors play all the parts for Cinderella, even creating a horse-drawn carriage with their bodies. After the play, the students make different animals with their bodies. As Manuel leaves, Moses teaches him the sign for friend. Similar to other books in the series, Moses is depicted as a normal student who enjoys school and experiencing new things. At the end, Moses uses a TTY to "talk" via a telephone to his grandparents and tell them about the Little Theatre of the Deaf and his new friend. Sidebars show the motions for some of the vocabulary and sentences in signed English. Readers can learn about the deaf and practice signs. 2004, Frances Foster Books/Farrar Straus Giroux, Ages 6 to 10.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-In this engaging installment in the series about a hearing-impaired boy, Moses's class is joined by a group of hearing children from another school and the students are treated to a production of Cinderella by the Little Theatre of the Deaf. As the two classes intermingle prior to entering the gym, Moses meets Manuel, a new immigrant who does not yet speak English. The two boys develop a rapport, especially since "Moses knows how lonely it can be when no one understands you," and they communicate through gestures. The performance of the immediately recognizable fairy tale makes the signs and body language of the actors more accessible to both the children within the story and to readers. Insets in most of the spreads show Moses and later the performers demonstrating relevant American Sign Language. The colorful artwork is filled with enthusiastic kids with expressive features set against realistic school backdrops. This book not only familiarizes and sensitizes children to the culture of the deaf or hard-of-hearing community, but also tells an appealing story. Millman draws a parallel between the challenges faced by ESL students and those who do not hear and in so doing raises youngsters' general levels of awareness and empathy.-Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
