Jacob and his father have, “lots of ways of talking…signing or lipreading or just squeezing each other’s hands.” Jacob is hearing impaired — but by no means, adventure impaired. Join Jacob and his dad as they leave the house before dawn to watch the sunrise over the ocean. Let author Patricia Lakin’s impressionistic descriptions in this gorgeous story, DAD AND ME IN THE MORNING, take you away, on this podcast episode of Read Out Loud.
We recorded this episode in front of a live audience of picture book lovers during the KidLit TV Children’s Book Weekend on Governors Island.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Early one morning, when it is still dark, a young boy wakes to his special alarm clock. He puts on his hearing aids and clothes, then goes to wake his father. Together they brave the cold as they walk down the dirt road that leads to the beach. They are excited about their adventure—soon they will see the sunrise.
