A wonderful child-led book that celebrates Deaf culture and introduces readers to British Sign Language
Marvellously positive and encouraging throughout, this would be a useful addition to any primary school or public library, as well as being useful to help any child understand a little more about their deaf peers. – The Carousel
Ava is like any other 7-year-old. She likes to talk and laugh with her friends, is obsessed with dogs and loves being active. Ava is also deaf – and she’s proud of it. She loves her deaf community, that she’s bilingual, and that she experiences the world differently from hearing people.
In this book, Ava welcomes her hearing peers to her daily life, the way technology helps her navigate the world and explains common misconceptions about deaf people – and introduces some of her deaf heroes who have achieved amazing things. She talks about her experiences at school making friends with hearing children, and teaches readers the BSL alphabet and some BSL phrases.
Featuring photos of Ava, her friends and family throughout, plus illustrations of hand signs, this book celebrates deafness rather than discussing ‘overcoming challenges’ or ‘stigma’. Perfect for readers aged 5 and upwards.
