Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-Supporting national social studies standards, these books offer extremely brief discussions of special-needs children. Written and formatted in an uninspiring textbook style, each double-page spread introduces one concept, with a color photograph on the left and one or two simple sentences in large print on the right. Each cover shows a child interacting with other youngsters, but the internal pictures rarely show a special-needs child with other classmates. If the point is to understand and accept individual differences, how can one not show photographs of children with and without special needs working and playing together? Despite the controlled vocabulary, youngsters will need adult guidance to make the most of these titles.

HASH(0x9e09415c) out of 5 stars Balanced, easy to read March 21 2013
By A. Hasting - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book presented a simple, direct explanation of deafness. I work with elementary age deaf kids who sign and have cochlear implants, and they loved reading this. The text had a few "hard" words but was within their grasp with a little help.

They enjoyed looking at the picture of deaf kids with hearing aids and cochlear implants--"Just like me!" And they enjoyed looking at kids signing and going to speech.

This book has a neutral tone. Saying that some deaf kids talk, but not that it is better to talk. Saying that some deaf kids sign, but not that it is better to sign. The book conveyed "This is how it is," more fact than opinion. Exactly what I was looking for.

This series is excellent for preschool through third grade. It gives a child an opportunity to see the differences and ask questions.

HASH(0x9e0945e8) out of 5 stars Good introduction Jan. 13 2015

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is a nice easy introductory book that can help spark good conversation with children about deaf/ hard of hearing friends. Written in a way that is easy for young children to understand but doesn't speak down to older students.

I read this with my severly visually impaired student. He didn't realize that the term blind applied to him. He is new to English. Still he enjoyed the book and had lots of questions, which is what I wanted.

Another great book to have in our classroom library. The book has colored pages with accompanying text. This book is great for preschool to primary level.
