A beautiful and inclusive book about being accepted!
Mack the yak found it hard to fit in with the other yaks in his herd and always felt left out of their fun and games, all because he couldn't speak or hear. He also didn't know how to explain to others why he wasn't able to play with them, and that made him feel even more lonely and sad.
Then, one day, the herd came up with a creative solution... a silent language! From that day on, Mack was eager to "talk" and "hear," and became a happy and included member of the herd. With the help of his new friends, he learned that understanding and kindness can overcome any special needs!
This book teaches us to be inclusive, accepting, and kind to each other no matter how different we all may be. Whether your child has a special need or not, it is a perfect tool to get the conversation going about people with disabilities or impairments.
"Yackety Mack" also includes a page with the American Sign Language Alphabet so you and your child can practice using sign language with each other while learning the core values of acceptance!
