A book about Julia

In a few weeks, or however long it takes for reading materials to cross the Atlantic, we'll add a new book to our library of titles about hearing loss. This one will be called, All About Julia.

For $14.99 (or almost $25 American), you can create a personalized experience book about your child's hearing loss. That's cartoon Julia on the left. She's sporting pink hearing aids. Real Julia would love rocking striped tights and flowered boots!

The online form asked lots of questions about the nature of Julia's hearing loss and her communication preferences. It included space to write about her interests and activities. She is much more than a girl with hearing aids after all.

I'm excited to have more than Oliver the elephant to help us explain hearing loss to Julia's second grade class. What a great idea!
