Gemina’s book is an important part of our lives these days. I wanted to share with you a portion of a note that a reader living in Barcelona sent me.
“When my son was born, we were told he was deaf. After many tests and surgery, he was implanted with a cochlear implant. We are still working hard with his speech therapist and his specialists and little by little he is learning to speak. He is learning 3 languages!
He was given your book of Gemina by my sister’s sister-in-law. Every 6 months they send us a small package with things for my son. When he saw your book he was very happy.
For the last 9 months. Every night before we go to sleep he wants to see the book! He loves to explain to me every page. He is just so excited with your book. I just wanted to say thank you for writing a wonderful story that is allowing my son to learn new words and also teaching about disabilities and how in the eyes of Gemina we are all the same. This December we will be spending Christmas with my family in California and we will take my son to the Santa Barbara zoo for the first time so he can see where Gemina lived!
I wanted to share this with you as I think Gemina’s book is an important part of our life these days.” – Reader Vickie
