The Secrets Hidden Beneath the Palm Tree
Guest Post by Angeliki Stamatopoulou-Pedersen (Pictured below).
This early childhood book is written from a mother's point of view with the purpose of helping children with hearing loss and their families at the critical mainstream stage.
A young girl, Angelia, is sensitive, observant, curious
and in her own way shares
her experience from her first few days of school.
Her classmate, Jacob,
gave her the desire to learn new things
and very quickly he became her best friend.
Available in English and Greek. See samples below:
