Books for hearing parents to share with their deaf children:  RISE (reading involves shared experience) is a project that produces bilingual-bimodal ebooks for hearing and deaf people to share.  All books are offered for free on the Internet:

While no money ever exchanges hands, authors and illustrators who contribute their out-of-print book (for which you have had the publisher revert the rights back to you) can deduct the value of downloads (whatever your percentage of the full price would have been) from taxes.  And your book might get translated into languages all around the world -- think of that!  You can contact Donna Jo Napoli if you want to contribute: donnajonapoli@gmail.com
