- Shhh, It's Raining
An illustrated children's book
- "Children’s perception on fantasy as reality"
‘Shhh, It's Raining' is a children's illustrated book about a hearing-impaired girl called Sophie and her imaginary world. Through Sophie’s imaginary experiences, the appreciation and the awareness of the hearing-impaired are highlighted through their enhanced ability to visualize in a silent world. The language and written words used to narrate the story are significant. It takes longer for a deaf child to establish a codex vocabulary and patterns of speech.
Sophie's imaginary world lies within reality where she expresses her interactions with the world via her imagination. This is significant in clarifying the crossover between Sophie’s imagination and reality when on her own. This imaginary world dissolves away once her mother comes into focus.
