The first draft of Zoey Goes to the Dog Park!

For a while, Rachel and I had been contemplating about creating fun e-books for children to view in American Sign Language and read in English. We also wanted to incorporate American Deaf culture into the book -- we discovered there were not too many books with these features like that out there! So we just jotted down the story about going to the dog park based on our experiences with our dog, Winston. The next step was finding a Deaf illustrator who expressed our similar taste in art. Lo and behold, we knew Jena was the perfect partner to work with after we saw this image above! The rest was history.
