Kami and the Yaks by Andrea Stenn Styer will be told in American Sign Language, and is recommended for children ages 5-12. The story is about Kami, a deaf Sherpa boy, and his family, who make a living guiding people up the mountain on yaks.
One day, when the yaks cannot be found, Kami sets off into the high mountains to look for them. Kami survives storms and separation from his family, discovering the courage he needs to find the yaks and bring them home.
