In this bighearted book, the real story of a young boy with deafness in his ears is aided by his mother and teachers in navigating new school experiences. Mickey is just like everyone else, except he wears cochlear implants and has to do things just a little differently than most. This charming tale reminds us that we can all find happiness if we lean on and support each other.
Mickey on the Move by Michelle Wagner was bright, beautiful, and a book I believe should be in every home/school. It emphasized that we can overcome anything that gets thrown in our path whether it is a disability like Mickey had or a bad grade in class we can work to find solutions to help us have a normal way of life. I loved how Mickey’s mom was not fazed by her son’s diagnosis but immediately started thinking of ways to help his life be as normal as possible and learning sign language right along with him. The illustrations were detailed and helped add more dimension to the story as you could more easily visualize what Mickey was going through. Plus, I liked the look and feel of the paper used, it is a strong durable paper that will last through many hands reading it. The verbiage used in this story is geared towards 3rd-5th grade reading level based on word choice, and paragraph structure. However, I think it still would be fun for even younger readers to follow along with.
I sincerely enjoyed this book and give it 4 out of 5 stars.
