Michelle Wagner’s Mickey on the Move is a true story about a deaf child named Mickey. Mickey is about to start his first day at his new school. However, Mickey is a bit different from the other kids: he needs cochlear implants for his ears, so he needs assistance from his mom, teachers, and friends. People always make plans in advance so that Mickey will not have any problem in school. With the help of his mom, teachers, and friends, Mickey is about to face new experiences with a happy heart. Join Mickey in his fun adventures at his new school!
Mickey on the Move by Michelle Wagner is an inspiring and well-written short story full of valuable lessons. It is also filled with adorable illustrations by Jenny Phelps which helps in making the story easier to understand and more fun to read. I was able to understand what cochlear implants are for and how different they are from hearing aids. Aside from learning new things, this tale also brought out different emotions in me: I felt sad for Mickey when he had to sneak into the library for lunch because he could not handle the noise. It warmed my heart when his friends, mom, and teacher brainstormed together to find a way for him to enjoy his lunch break with his friends peacefully. Such kindness and caring for another person touched my heart.
This story is perfect for parents to read aloud to their children. It will help educate young readers about children or people with hearing disabilities and, in the process, teach them good values. This story shows that a little support and kindness often goes a long way and could mean a lot to one person. Overall, a heart-warming and unforgettable story. Great work!
