Top Customer Reviews
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.
