The jackdaw wants all his friends to come to his party, but when he calls out his invitation the animals just touch their heads. Why won't they answer? And what do their actions mean? Luckily a brown owl can help him with the puzzle!This book about friendship and sign language was created by Gruffalo author Julia Donaldson with a group of deaf children in a workshop organised by the not-for-profit organisation Life & Deaf which helps deaf children to explore their identities through poetry, film, performance and art.Featuring Nick Sharratt's bright and accessible illustrations, What the Jackdaw Saw is another beautiful picture book from the team behind Goat Goes to Playgroup and Toddle Waddle.

5 stars
We are Julia Donaldson fans in our home and whilst we had not heard of this title, we were naturally drawn to it. It is the usual great rhyming style and full colour page illustrations to engage the children, but with simply brilliant hidden sign going on throughout with the animals. We absolutely loved this element, and so wish there were more books out there like this. I loved the additional signs to learn at the end of the book too. Brilliant.
