About the Author

Lilli Beese (Author) Ava Beese is seven years old. When she was two, her dad Nick posted a YouTube video of her signing with her mum over dinner. It went viral, was watched almost 1.5 million times, and was picked up by BBC News. The videos her family still post of their BSL dinner chats continue to receive tens of thousands of hits. Ava's mum, Lilli Beese, is a BSL interpreter, television presenter and trainee psychologist. Ava's dad, Nick Beese, is a designer and former captain of Great Britain's deaf football team. Together, Nick and Lilli founded support group Deaf Parents Deaf Children. They regularly campaign on deaf issues.


In this book, Ava welcomes her hearing peers to her daily life, the way technology helps her navigate the world and explains common misconceptions about deaf people - and introduces some of her deaf heroes who have achieved amazing things ... an excellent way to understand and empathise. * Parents In Touch *
Marvellously positive and encouraging throughout this would be a useful addition to any primary school or public library, as well as being useful to help any child understand a little more about their deaf peers. * The Carousel *
This book is subtitled 'Discover my community and my language' and it certainly achieves that aim. * The School Librarian *
