Mighty Mila is a labor of love inspired by my spunky, unstoppable daughter, Mila, who is deaf & has cochlear implants and a deep passion to create more inclusion in the world.
I am so excited to give the world a fun story where all kids can fall in love with an imaginative, fierce girl, who just happens to have hearing loss.
Today more than ever, we need children’s books that celebrate differences & provide a more inclusive view of the world.
This book helps open up conversations with kids about differences & disabilities. Perfect for families looking to add inclusive books to their library.
3 million children in the United States alone have hearing loss. During our journey, we realized just how few children's books feature deaf & hard of hearing characters.
Children with hearing loss deserve to see themselves represented in stories as regular kids where hearing loss is NOT the focus of their story. Since these books didn't exist, I knew I needed to write one.
