His Aqua Cochlear implants allow him to hear and appreciate the beautiful sounds in nature without the worry of weather dampening his day!
Join Mickey for another adventure!
I've been reading children's books lately and I love them! Their illustrations are gorgeous, and the colors make me happy. After a stressful day, they are the perfect was to unwind. Mickey on the Move: Farming did not disappoint and was exactly what I needed to recenter myself.
In Mickey on the Move: Farming, we follow Mickey and his mom as they tackle their daily chores (feeding the chickens and tending the garden). Mickey was born deaf and is in the early stages of Aqua Cochlear implants and can’t get them wet, which limits the amount he can help his mom on the farm. Eventually, he will work his way up to a waterproof pair.
I love this book because it explains what cochlear implants are and is a great tool to education children about the experiences of deaf children. It also teaches that patience is needed to read out goals. This is the second in the series and I look forward to reading more in future books.
