5-star Review, Readers’ Favorite:

Kelly Brakenhoff’s picture book story, Never Mind (Duke the Deaf Dog ASL), is a touching story about a deaf dog and how he interacts with his friends and his siblings. He likes to be part of all that is going on around him, but he doesn’t like it when others tell him to “never mind.” The language is simple and will appeal to the young reader. The plot develops steadily with compassion. The illustrations are super and definitely help carry the story along. On some pages, there are windows showing a person signing a word used in the story. At the end of the book, the author explains the multiple meanings of “never mind” and how the words are signed differently depending on the meaning intended. A wonderful way to introduce young readers to differences and learning to be patient, kind and understanding at all times. Because no one appreciates being brushed aside with a ‘never mind.'” Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers’ Favorite
