Oh No! Where did it go? Eddie the Elephant has lost his ear. Why, oh why, can he not hear?
Eddie is an endearing and adventurous elephant whose day is turned upside down when he breaks and loses his ear and discovers he can no longer hear! With the help of an itsy-bitsy spider and a magical hearing aid, Eddie goes on an unexpected journey to get his ear (and hearing) back.
Eddie the Elephant’s Magical Ear is a delightful and imaginative book for both children and adults with hearing loss, and for those who recently got or are curious about others with hearing aids. When Eddie tells of his adventure, there is nothing but delight associated with his magical hearing aid and the importance of hearing. Everyone loves an elephant, and an elephant with a magical hearing aid makes anyone who has one magical too!
“Eddie the Elephant has a wonderful, vibrant message for children about the joy of hearing.”
—Gael Hannan, advocate, author, The Way I Hear It: A Life with Hearing Loss and Hear & Beyond: Live Skillfully with Hearing Loss (with Shari Eberts)
“Eddie’s story is endearing, delightful, and adventurous. It’s true: it’s ok to be different, hearing is a gift.”
— Jackie Melvin, author, The Bartholomew Bear series
“Fun for children; a reminder for adults. Help comes in surprising ways. The biggest or strongest can need help! For Eddie, it’s a helping ear.”
—Joanne Haase, hearing aid wearer
“With 20+ years in education, it’s exciting to find a children’s book on hearing loss. Eddie is whimsical and kind; he will capture the hearts of young readers. This book belongs in every classroom.”
—Teresa Calle, primary school teacher
“My class loved this book—especially since we have a student in class with a cochlear implant. They said it really helped them understand what she goes through.”
—Heidi Foyer, second-grade teacher
“My favorite part was when the spider gave Eddie the magical hearing aid, and the moral of the story is that you can do anything if you have a little bit of help.”
