Episode Summary

EDIT
I Can Sign/ The Sign For Friend
AIRED:
I Can Sign: Brenda and Little Bill are grocery shopping when Little Bill notices a new cashier; he is confused because she doesn't talk, using her hands to communicate. Brenda explains the cashier, Angie, is deaf, and uses sign language to talk. She tries to introduce them, but Little Bill becomes uncharacteristically shy, and afraid to talk. When they return home and tell April what happened, she remarks that she's learning sign language at school and can teach Little Bill what to say; she shows him how to say Hello, Friends, and Elephant, and how to finger spell his name. The next time they go to the store, Little Bill signs his usual greeting to Angie, "Hello, Friend!"

The Sign For Friend: Little Bill is playing in the park with Andrew when they notice a new girl playing with her mother; she seems engrossed with using a special magnifying glass that lets her look at insects closely. The boys would like to meet her and ask if they can play with the toy, too, but can't seem to get her attention when they talk to her. Little Bill figures out the girl might be deaf, and asks her mother about it. The girl's mother confirms his guess, and using the new signs April taught him, Little Bill signs to the girl his name and that they want to play with her. Smiling, she eagerly lets them play with her toys, happy to make some new friends.moreless
