"Forever Friends" by Allison Schley

I'm looking forward to reading "Forever Friends"  by Allison Schley http://www.2foreverfriends.com/index.html to my Kindergarten and First Grade Sign Language students this week.

I like this page where Mom is signing "wake up" to Matt on his birthday. It is also the sign for "surprise". Matt's birthday surprise is a trip to the Humane Society where he finds his forever friend Dexter, who is deaf, just like Matt.

This book incorporates a few basic signs and has a very special message about deafness.

Fabulous husband took this photo of me with Allison's book, "Forever Friends".


  1. Ooh, thanks! I am going to have to check this out.

    Happy New Year!

  2. It's a wonderful book, Gary. Maybe Allison can drop by your class if she does a book tour. You can find 2 Forever Friends on FaceBook, too.

    A Happy New Year to you, as well, Gary!

  3. Looks a great book from page I am seeing in photo.

  4. Hi Joyce,
    Do you mean the Humane Society? I had to read your post twice while pondering what a Human Society was (smile).
    Happy New Year! I love books that include signing.


    1. LOL! Sarah, thank you for pointing out that error. :-) I better fix that.
