"We absolutely loved everything about this book. It's a great book to help children feel confident wearing their hearing devices and helps them understand the different devices they will see within their community! We've never found a book like this!" - Carly, Emma, Molly and Marissa Waters of Lemon(Aids).org
"This lovely book is the kind of story about diversity that every kiddo needs to read. It is a sweet yet simple way to learn all the various types of communication methods children with deafness and hearing loss utilize." - Valli Vida Gideons, Writer and Hearing Loss Advocate at mybattlecall.com
"Wow! What a great teaching story! Having children read about their own experiences and see images and characters depicting their own life experiences (i.e. seeing someone who looks just like them) is so important to the development of a positive self-identity and self-concept." - Tami Iszler, Teacher of the Deaf in Bismarck, ND
