It encourages the little reader to consider how to ensure they are heard by someone with difficulty hearing.
It’s reads well with a nice flow and perfect length for bedtime reading.
I’ve bought 3 of these books having loaned my first to son’s reception class and they loved it so much I gifted it. I’ve bought for friends and will definitely buy again as someone who is deaf I don’t think we can start creating awareness too soon in children.
In other reviews I note people have mentioned the illustrations. I love the pictures in The Gruffalo and other Julia Donaldson books but this one has a different illustrator and I was a bit disappointed that it isn't even clear from the pictures whether the fairy is wearing a hearing aid, cochlear implant or whether it's just a hair grip. Whatever I might think my daughter loves this book and will tell me what the pictures show so they're not bad by any stretch of the imagination.
