“Beautifully illustrated by Tammie Lyon, Let’s Hear it for Almigal should be required reading for children who are hearing impaired. It’s easy to identify with Almigal, a child full of energy, enthusiasm, and mischief. Written in language that is simple to understand for children ages three through eight.” —ForeWord Reviews
“Kupfer—whose own daughter, Ali, was diagnosed with profound hearing loss at 10 months of age—celebrates uniqueness, while the delightful, full-page illustrations show the lively heroine and her friends and family enjoying their differences.” —Kirkus Reviews
“This is a lovely, positive uplifting book that will also hopefully make people more aware of what it is like to be deaf. It is important for people to understand what it is like to be deaf so that they can empathize with deaf people. It also gives those who are deaf an amazing character that they can relate to.” —Children’s Web Magazine

I also read it to my second graders to teach them tolerance and how to accept everyone for who the they are in the inside rather than the outside.This book sparked questions of higher level thinking skills about being hearing impaired. My students were so interested that as an extra lesson they are learning Sign Langauge.
Thanks again Wendy for writing this book which allows hearing impaired children to see a main character in a book just like them. The book is so true to life.
She recently started saying "I can hear mommy and daddy say I love you with my implant ears!" which is similar something they say in the book.
