Let's Hear It for Almigal is a fun, quick and informative children's book.
Let's Hear It for Almigal is a fun, quick and informative children's book. It teaches children that everyone is different but in a good way. For Almigal, it was being heair impaired. While this did make her sad that she could not hear her friends and her parents saying they love her at night, Almigal would not miss out much longer. Almigal would see a doctor, who would tell her about a cochlear implant. It is like a hearing aid but it is surgically implanted so that the person can hear.
I was glad when Almigal got her implant as she was such a sweet, smart girl. The implant did not hinder Almigal but only helped her to do more. The pictures in this book were nicely drawn and colorful. They were not too clustered on the pages. Also, the sentences were also short. I liked this because if I was reading this book to my nephews or nieces or they wanted to read the bok themselves, then they would have a easy time doing so and their attention would stay on the story until the end.
