Inclusion is very important so that children can feel connected to the stories they read. The children's book Carl Writes a Letter promotes positive perspectives on social advocacy and shows how Carl can write a letter to help get more Deaf representation in books. The 24-page fiction book also includes a "words to know" vocabulary list and comprehension questions to keep the learning going. Carl was first introduced in our Katie Can series, based on our best-selling book of the same title. In the story, Katie becomes friends with her early-elementary classmate Carl through her familiarity with basic ASL. We are continuing with Carl's story in the new and inclusive Carl Can series. This children's book was reviewed by Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services. Rourke proudly publishes respectful and relevant non-fiction and fiction titles that represent diverse readers, and are designed to support reading on a level that has no limits!
