Resumo

Ebooks provide new ways to advance developing literacy among deaf children.  While some aim to promote literacy through explicit pedagogical techniques, the new ebooks described here aim only to offer stories that are fun to share, encouraging learning through interaction that naturally fosters language and preliteracy skills.   Reading for pleasure is recognized as valuable for hearing children; it needs to be recognized as such for deaf children.  We present the rationale for these ebooks and give examples of how they advance preliteracy skills, in the hopes that those raising and educating deaf children will use them, offered gratis on the Internet.
