Description

Looking for a picture book about microtia? A sweet and gentle way to introduce disability and diversity to children? Jojo’s Tiny Ear is charming, hand-illustrated book for kids that tells the story of the author’s son, Jojo, and his hearing disability.

Jojo is a happy boy who loves fireworks, the zoo, swings, and trucks! He was also born with a hearing disability. In this inspiring, child-friendly kid’s book about hearing disability, written by his mother, Jojo will tell you all about his favorite things. He’ll also answer your questions about his tiny ear and show you that his disability doesn’t stop him from enjoying his life!

Author and illustrator Stefania Munzi-Logus writes lovingly, but informatively, about her son, his condition, and how to communicate with people with hearing disabilities.

“Be proud of what makes you, you.
We all thrive with our own technique.
You are valuable too.
The world is more beautiful when we are all unique.”

This is a picture book about microtia. But the real message for kids and parents alike is that differences are ok and that everybody is a little bit different!

“A wonderful book about inclusion and acceptance. Jojo is a resilient young boy who is full of life and, with the help of his mom, brings awareness to microtia. Through the book, Jojo teaches everyone that just because something may be different; you can still play, reach far places, and enjoy life all the same.” — Nicole Cossette, Doctoral Candidate, Infant and Early Childhood Development, Fielding Graduate University

“A playful and informative story about living with microtia. As someone who was born with microtia as well, it is important for stories like this one to introduce children and families to the specifics associated with the condition.” — Dr. Justine Green, author of Completely Me

“The fact that it highlights we are all unique sends a simple, but strong message that while each of us are different we all share the same challenges in life – albeit in different ways and that each obstacle can be overcome with each incremental step! This story book for young children encapsulates that very essence – I know this – for I am deaf, too.” — Carl Morris, World Pool Champion

“This beautifully illustrated book shares a powerful message about how kids who have differences are typical kids. They want to be included and treated like any other kid.” —Valli Gideons, author of Now Hear This: Harper Soars with her Magic Ears

JoJo’s Tiny Ear highlights how ‘different’ is just a simple explanation away from being wonderful, accepted, and valued.” — Dr. Joseph Veth, Professor of Education, Albertus Magnus College
