The Sound of All Things

July 6, 2016

61Tqmms131LThe Sound of All Things

By Myron Uhlberg

Illustrated by Ted Papoulas

Have you ever tried to describe the sounds of a clacking, rushing roller coaster? Or how about the sounds a wave makes as it crashes on the sand? As a hearing child with two deaf parents, the boy in this book spends so much time trying to explain these things to his father. Sometimes he wants to tell his father no, that he doesn’t have the right words to describe a sound. It could be difficult at times to explain something that was so regular to his ears.

Set in 1930’s Brooklyn, this book has a rich historical element as well as a great perspective about people with disabilities. It’s easy to find inspiration in the boy’s decision to find more words to help describe the sounds of the world for his father. This is more than a slice of a different life, The Sound of All Things can help kids learn patience and kindness when interacting with people, disabled or not.

Recommended for ages 4-8.
