In this bighearted book, the real story of a young boy with deafness in his ears is aided by his mother and teachers in navigating new school experiences. Mickey is just like everyone else, except he wears cochlear implants and has to do things just a little differently than most. This charming tale reminds us that we can all find happiness if we lean on and support each other.
I love books that introduce “real life” to children. In this book you are introduced to Mickey who wears cochlear implants (hearing aids) and how he doesn’t hear the same as everyone else. It walks through the things Mickey has to do to learn. He also doesn’t like being around a ton of noise because it’s too much for him. Mickey, his friends and his mom brainstorm different ideas to help him handle everyday situations more easily.
This book emphasizes friendship and family. It also brings awareness to other children, now when they see a cochlear implant they will know what it is and does. The story was beautifully written and Illustrated. As always Mascot Books come in a Gorgeous hardcover!
