A fantastic childrens book raising awareness of hearing problems in children. I was so relieved to discover this book as my son has a hearing aid and I have yet to find a character in a book that he can relate to. Thank you Alex Naidoo. Beautifully illustrated too!

I received this book as a gift for my Reception class (ages 4-5). As I was reading it to them for the first time we talked about the story, what it is to be deaf, what a hearing aid is, how we can support people with hearing difficulties. They were totally engrossed in it, coming up with some fantastic ideas. When the story was finished, I said "The End", one of the children shouted out "NO" as he said he didn't want it to end (a good review in itself I think). I will keep reading this to them over a period of time to help them all understand the story. An excellent read.

This book is fantastic! I've used it with a few deaf students in primary schools and they love it, helps with a positive deaf identity and teaches children how to teach others to help them. I also made worksheets for the book based on the students' language targets as you can see from the photographs.

Daisy and Ted’s Awesome Adventures begin the day a new family moves into the community. Ted is keen to make friends with the new kid on the block but when he calls over garden fence, Daisy doesn’t respond; it turns out she’s deaf and simply doesn’t hear Ted’s friendly approach. Despite this false start the next-door neighbours do later get talking and soon Ted discovers that deafness is (of course) no barrier to imaginative play, adventures and friendship.

Through encounters with swashbuckling pirates, alien roller discos and wizarding school cookery classes Ted also picks up lots of practical tips which help when talking with someone who has hearing loss. For example, he discovers the importance of facing the person you want to chat with, of not covering your mouth with your hands or trying to talk whilst eating.

Helpful information, presented playfully but clearly, makes this a practical book that will be very helpful for young children and their grown ups welcoming new friends-to-be who are deaf. It will build empathy, as well as equipping hearing children with some simple tools to help their deaf friends. For children who themselves deaf, it’ great to find a book with with a deaf lead character who is not only practical, confident and empowered but also playful and imaginative – in other words, just like them (or at least, how we hope a book might help them feel).

Definitely a useful book for schools and libraries, what I’d love to see next is a book with similar themes that could break into the mass market, to reach all sorts of people not just those looking for a particular book / “when a book might help”. Published by The National Deaf Children’s Society, rather than a mainstream publisher, this book may have a hard time breaking out of the inclusivity pigeon-hole that it could easily end up being filed away in.

I bought this for my daughter who has a hearing loss. She loves it. It was great for sharing with her friends so they can think about how they communicate with her. The adventures Daisy goes on are right up her street too. Good for developing language and imagination.
