Kami and the Yaks

Kami and the Yaks written by Andrea Stenn Stryer and illustrated by Bert Dodson tells the story of a young Sherpa boy who is deaf and lives in the Himalaya. When he discovers his family is missing, he sets off to find them. Despite his fear of being alone in a fierce storm, Kami finds the courage to keep searching. This book has also recently won the Schneider Family Book Award. This award is given out each year by the American Libraries Association to three books that "emphasize the artistic expression of the disability experience for children and or adolescent audiences. The book must portray some aspect of living with a disability or that of a friend or family member, whether the disability is physical, mental or emotional."
