This is Shaylee, a delightful 7-year-old with some seriously amazing storytelling skills! Shaylee, who was born deaf, is a native signer and the daughter of Sheena McFeely and Manny Johnson, who are also deaf and teach American Sign Language (ASL) on their website ASLnook.
According to her mom, Shaylee has always been in love with books. “From day one, Shaylee has been and will always be a book worm. In fact, when she cried as a baby, a book would magically wipe her tears away.”
This is the fourth year Shaylee has shared her impressive abilities interpreting Christmas books. She was just 4 when she took on ’Twas the Night Before Christmas, and last year she brought Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer to life.
So sit back and enjoy Shaylee’s latest… her thoroughly entertaining telling of The Polar Express… think of it as an early Christmas present.
