Mickey on the Move is a story that features a young boy with cochlear implants starting at a new school. I thought this was an awesome story to introduce children to our differences and celebrate them.
I loved the Mickey teaches us about difficulties that he’s already figured out how to overcome, but we also get to experience some with him. It was a nice balance throughout the story.
I thought that this was a good story with a wonderful main character that children will connect with. I loved the support provided by Mickey’s mother, friends, and teachers. What a wonderful support system!
To Read or Not To Read:
I would recommend Mickey on the Move for all children. It provides an inclusive message and a wonderful view of a strong support system for children.
