More Than Words: So Many Ways to Say What We Mean by Maclean
In the tradition of All Are Welcome and The Day You Begin comes a touching picture book about the many unique ways we communicate, and how we can better listen to and respect these different modes of expression.
Nathan doesn’t say much. He sure has a lot on his mind, though.
At school, Nathan quietly observes the diverse ways his peers communicate. Even when they’re not talking, they’re expressing themselves in all sorts of ways!
Beautifully illustrated, this tender picture book moves from exploring and celebrating many different forms of expression—signing, speaking, singing, smiling, among others—to a poignant story about the search for connection and understanding. By its conclusion, Nathan learns and shows his fellow classmates the essential lesson that understanding and being mindful of one another is the greatest bridge to friendship and belonging.
