Elephant and the Lost Blanket

Photo: Elephant has lost something special at the park. With a little help from her friends she sets out to find it...

We think characters in stories should be as diverse as the people who read them, but only a handful of children’s books feature a deaf character. We’re working to change that with our children’s book.

In our latest book – Elephant and the Lost Blanket – Elephant takes her special blue blanket with her everywhere. It’s her favourite thing in the whole world. So when it goes missing in the park one day, Elephant is desperate to find it. Her friends come to the rescue and help her search, but all is not as it seems...

We think it's important for deaf children to see themselves reflected in the books they read and to know they can do anything their hearing friends can do. So we've created the perfect book for young children with deaf characters they can identify with and that hearing children can learn about.

Available from Amazon for £6.99. 

All money raised from sales will help us to create a world without barriers for deaf children.

The video below can help you really bring the book to life by learning some of the key vocabulary in British Sign Language.
