A cute and fun easy-to-follow children’s book. I love the fun rhymes along with the education about deafness, and especially the addition of sign language. — Rikki Poynter, Content Creator, Writer, Accessibility Consultant & Public Speaker

Looking for a picture book about microtia? A sweet and gentle way to introduce disability and diversity to children? Jojo’s Tiny Ear is charming, hand-illustrated book for kids that tells the story of the author’s son, Jojo, and his hearing disability.
Jojo is a happy boy who loves fireworks, the zoo, swings, and trucks! He was also born with a hearing disability. In this inspiring, child-friendly kid’s book about hearing disability, written by his mother, Jojo will tell you all about his favorite things. He’ll also answer your questions about his tiny ear and show you that his disability doesn’t stop him from enjoying his life!
Author and illustrator Stefania Munzi-Logus writes lovingly, but informatively, about her son, his condition, and how to communicate with people with hearing disabilities.
“Be proud of what makes you, you.
We all thrive with our own technique.
You are valuable too.
The world is more beautiful when we are all unique.”
This is a picture book about microtia. But the real message for kids and parents alike is that differences are ok and that everybody is a little bit different!
Check out the “Press about Jojo” tab to read more about Stefania and Jojo and their story, including a recent segment on Wednesday’s Warrior: Jojo’s Tiny Ear brings awareness to hearing loss for children and a Live Chat and Read Aloud with Sheryl Lewin, MD!
A sweet, heartfelt story from the author’s own experiences and a nice message about how our differences make us unique.
This children’s book is heartwarming.
I would read this to my children.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Beautiful book kids love
The pictures in this book are beautiful. The book has an inclusive message and teaches kids about hearing impairments in an age-appropriate way. I teach kids and they love this book.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ What a wonderful story! So beneficial to many, big or small! A book to read by a wonderful mom!
I also have a child with microtia and I was very excited to purchase this book. The illustrations and story line are wonderful. I have followed the author/illustrator on social media and have watched a lot of interviews with her and I think she is amazing. Her own personal story is very inspiring and gives me hope. I highly recommend this book for any parents of children with microtia or hearing loss.

A wonderful book about differences. Jojo is a boy with a small ear. It is so small it doesn’t work properly. He has a special device to help him hear. He uses sign language to communicate with the people around him.
It is important to teach children that being different is what makes the world more interesting.
The illustrations are very colourful and nice.
