In this book Anna's story is told. The book explains the struggles of being deaf, but it also shows how she successfully goes through her life. It gives readers examples of her day at school, ballet class, and staying home. I also think this book is written in a way that would be easy for children to understand. ( )

"Anne's Silent World" is a story about one girl that is learning to communicate verbally despite that fact that she is hearing impaired. As the story travels with Anne to school, it explains how she learned to read lips to gain understand of whats being taught. With the daily use of an amplifier she is aqble to hear in phases what the people around her are saying. Her love for music is shown throughout the story. She participates in ballet and although she can not hear the music she lets the vibrations she feels help her dance in rhythem. At the end of the story Annie for Christmas gets a recorder, which displyed her passion for music.

Typical days of Anna's life are described, like her therapy, dance lessons, friendship, and family interaction.

The book would be useful in looking back at how and what people with hearing impairments learned around Anna's childhood years. ( )
