About the Author

Kathy with book blue top.png

In 2020, she founded ASL Picture Books to address the lack of representation of Deaf culture in children's books, and she published her award-winning debut children’s book, My Monster Truck Goes Everywhere With Me. She resides in Michigan with her family enjoying life and grandchildren.

Kathleen Marcath is a children’s book author who first discovered ASL when she learned to sign the song “Our God Is an Awesome God.” The beauty and power of ASL captured her attention and never let go. Countless times, she has watched the same magic illuminate people’s faces (deaf and hearing alike) when they learn this beautiful language. 

 

Her B.A. in Deaf Community Studies from Madonna University inspired her to promote ASL literacy and raise awareness of its importance to audiences of all ages and backgrounds. 


Our Mission

Our Mission is to tap into the unlimited potential of American Sign Language for all people through entertaining and educational picture books and videos.  Helping every child discover the gift they hold and the skills to share it with the world as only they can. 

Our Vision

  • American Sign Language is embraced and actively used in schools across America.

  • The social stigma associated with hearing loss and the use of sign language is gone.

  • The untapped potential of ASL is discovered daily in all walks of life.

  • Hearing and d/Deaf and hard-of-hearting students are connected through communication with bi-lingual skills of their native languages. 

  • ASL is considered a natural normal highly effective means of communication.

  • Research is removing blinders, understanding the mind-body connection of positive reinforcement, and the benefits of ASL for all people.

  •  Making connections and reaching their potential in purpose-driven lives.
