 About the Book 

A mother and daughter spend a sunny day at the beach together where they swim, dance, build sandcastles, and, most importantly, communicate. But their communication is not spoken- rather, it is created by loving hands that use American Sign Language.MoreA mother and daughter spend a sunny day at the beach together where they swim, dance, build sandcastles, and, most importantly, communicate.
