Movers & Shakers: Deaf People Who Changed the World (Storybook)

Ludwig van Beethoven wrote some of the world's greatest music without hearing it. Thomas Edison invented the phonograph to copy sounds he could not hear. Helen Keller rose above deafness and blindness to spend her lifetime helping others. Andrew Foster became a missionary and established schools for deaf children in Africa. With unforgettable poise and resolve, the extraordinary deaf heroes of Movers and Shakers illustrate how to triumph over seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Each concise profile reveals the genius, struggle, and perseverance that helped them turn adversity into advantage for themselves and our world. Includes references on Deaf culture and history, fingerspelling, gestures and sign language, Deaf publications, and English as a second language.
