It is 1805 and Mary Lambert has always felt safe among the deaf community of Chilmark on Martha's Vineyard where practically everyone communicates in a shared sign language, but recent events have shattered her life; her brother George has died, land disputes between English settlers and the Wampanoag people are becoming increasingly bitter, and a "scientist" determined to discover the origins of the islands' widespread deafness has decided she makes the perfect "live specimen"--and kidnapped her.… (mais)

Ableism is discrimination and prejudice against people who are perceived to have disabilities. This includes stereotypes that characterize an individual or group as inferior to those without the ability, skill, or characteristic. For instance, while some people perceive deafness as a barrier, others do not.
Read the recently published work of historical fiction for youth, then learn more at the website:

SHOW ME A SIGN by Ann Clare LeZotte tells the story of a young girl living on Martha’s Vineyard in the 19th century. Like some other English settlers who live on the island, Mary is deaf and communicates with her friends and family using sign language. When a scientist kidnaps Mary as a test subject in his quest to find the cause for what he calls her “infirmity”, she must find her way home.

Pair this work of historical fiction with the recently published “super powered edition” of the Newbery Honor Book graphic memoir El Deaf by Cece Bell.

HISTORY THROUGH DEAF EYES is a web-based project from Gallaudet University. The project includes an online exhibition, documentary, and educational resources. The project explores 200 years of Deaf culture in America and examines perspectives on what it means to be deaf.

Such a beautiful story about sign language on Martha's Vineyard in the early 1800s. What intrigued me was not just the prejudice and misconceptions the rest of the world held against those who were deaf, but the discrimination by those who lived on Martha's Vineyard (both hearing and deaf) against freedmen and the indigenous Wampanoag people. It's up to 10-year-old Mary to sort out how she feels about all of it, including whether to tell her parents the role she played in her older brother's accidental death. (Not a spoiler.)

It starts out slowly, so it may take some convincing to get my 4th and 5th grade library patrons to take a chance on it, but the adventurous second half will make them glad they did. In fact, because it is, in turns, quiet and dangerous, it will appeal to both my introverts and extroverts.

The end notes also contain some enlightening information.

This historical fiction book is a fabulous follow-up to Macy McMillan and the Rainbow Goddess by Shari Green, a contemporary story about a girl who is deaf. ( )

The year is 1805 and Mary Lambert lives with her family in the Chilmark community on Martha's Vineyard island. She, like many there are deaf and communicate with a shared sign language. In an extra rough year of her brother's accidental death and tension growing between the settlers and the Wampanoag of the area, a stranger comes to the island to study why so many have "fallen ill" with deafness. Although a scientist who ingratiates himself with the local clergyman, he believes the non-speakers to be less than human and treats them with as little dignity. Speaking around them whenever possible isn't the ultimate insult though; before he leaves the island, he kidnaps Mary to take back to Boston to study as a speciman. Will her family ever be able to find her? This 269 page book would be perfect for a book discussion grades 4-6 ( )

Mary is growing up on a small town in Martha's Vineyard in 1805. Like Mary, there is a significant number of deaf people on the island, 1 in 4 of the population. Everyone signs. Mary and her family are still reeling over the accidental death of her older brother. When a stranger comes to the island who wants to study the cause of deafness, the initially welcoming townspeople grow wary. When Mary confronts the young scientist things go off the rails pretty quickly. Mary has to rely on her wits and overcome prejudices to be safe and return to her family. ( )
