Emma is excited about Izzie's birthday party. But she's also nervous. Is her dress too fancy? Will she know anyone else at the party? Did she buy the right gift? Will Emma's worries ruin her chance to have fun? Find out how Emma handles her party problems in this early chapter book from the Emma Every Day series. Emma is Deaf and often uses sign language to communicate, and each book includes an ASL fingerspelling chart, a sign language guide, a glossary, and content-related questions.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "As Emma gets ready for her best friend Izzie's birthday party, she worries about her gift--and whether she'll understand her friends. Like the author of this early reader, Emma is deaf, wears a cochlear implant (CI), and signs in American Sign Language (ASL). This first installment in the Emma Every Day series opens with a visual guide to the white girl, her family, African American best friend, and pet fish, as well as a fingerspelling guide to the ASL manual alphabet and numbers. In three short chapters, Emma experiences both common kid events, such as dancing and playing games at a party, and those unique to deaf children, such as having to adjust her CI to interpret speech amidst loud noises. Accompanied by lively illustrations in an animated style and featuring a diverse cast, the text recognizes signed and spoken communication and includes manual spellings of fun words like mermaid. In a concluding "Learn to Sign" section, a brown-skinned girl demonstrates how to sign birthday and other related words. A delightful, much needed #OwnVoices story."
