Ava is like any other 7-year-old. She likes to talk and laugh with her friends, is obsessed with dogs and loves being active. Ava is also deaf - and she's proud of it. She loves her Deaf community, that she's bilingual, and that she experiences the world differently from hearing ...people. In this book, Ava introduces her hearing peers to her daily life, the way technology helps her navigate the world and explains common misconceptions about deaf people. She talks about her experiences at school making friends with hearing children, and teaches readers the BSL alphabet and basic BSL phrases.
