May 2nd, 2011 by | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , | 6 Comments »



In honor of Better Hearing and Speech Month 2011, Elizabeth Boschini (author) and Rachel Chaikof (illustrator) are proud to announce the re-release of their books, Ellie’s Ears and Happy Birthday to My Ears.  Since the original release for BHSM 2008, these children’s books, which feature characters who are deaf but can listen and talk with the help of bilateral cochlear implants, have reached across the United States and across the world to homes, classrooms, and clinics promoting positive self-esteem for children with hearing loss.

The new editions are available with:

  • ENGLISH and (NEW!) Spanish versions

  • Print and (NEW!) eBook formats

  • LOWER prices

  • IMPROVED graphics

And, as always, ALL proceeds from EaR Books are donated to non-profit organizations that support children with hearing loss and their families.
