The Sound of All Things

by Myron Uhlberg

A Brooklyn family takes an outing to Coney Island, where they enjoy the rides, the food, and the sights. The father longs to know how everything sounds. Though his son does his best to interpret the noisy surroundings through sign language, he struggles to find the words to convey the subtle differences between the “loud” of the ocean and the “loud” of a roller coaster. When the family drops in at the library on the way home, the boy makes a discovery—perhaps the words he needs are within reach, after all.
