WEIRD! – children’s book about feeling okay about yourself

 $9.00  + S/H   

Children with hearing loss are often teased because they wear hearing devices. Building the resilience to withstand being picked on needs to be addressed as early as possible, along with teaching children different ways to respond to questions about their hearing aids or cochlear implants. WEIRD provides a wonderful example of a girl who is picked on by a classmate and made to feel bad about herself and her eventual realization that she was okay just as she was.    An engaging book for families, teachers of the deaf/hard of hearing and classrooms. Purchase alone or as part of our No More Teasing Combo (see below). Karen Anderson, Director

WEIRD!

WeirdLuisa is repeatedly teased and called “weird” by her classmate Sam, even though she is simply being herself—laughing with her friends, answering questions in class, greeting her father in Spanish, and wearing her favorite polka dot boots.

Luisa initially reacts to the bullying by withdrawing and hiding her colorful nature. But with the support of her teachers, parents, classmates, and one special friend named Jayla, she is able to reclaim her color and resist Sam’s put-downs.
