Little Jessie's Beach Fun is a tri-lingual book in English, Spanish and American Sign Language (ASL). Embracing diversity and inclusion is at the core of this book and Author Nat does that by including Spanish and American Sign Language (ASL) support for the complete story. With ASL, Author Nat has brought a fully signed children's book to the deaf/hard of hearing community and for use in school classrooms where there is an increasing interest in teaching sign language to children. The book is also sprinkled with contextual fun, science facts for kids to learn, and an interactive, step by step guide to make their own paper crab!
Affable, young Jessie loves nothing more than a day at the beach with her dad taking in the sunshine, sand, trees, birds, sea animals and more.

Who could this new pal be? And what special treat does Jessie have in store? Dive into Jessie's world and find out in Little Jessie's Beach Fun.
