"This title is useful resource for children learning about the world and the people around them."

Children's Literature

"This is an easy-to-read, honest series . . . This educational series is interesting and informative without being condescending or patronizing. Deborah Kent uses her remarkable knowledge of the subjects (she is blind herself) to show that these limitations can be overcome and people can live productive, fulfilling lives."

Library Media Connection, January/February 2013

"Stories of real children living with blindness and deafness are woven into facts about the helpers, tools, and technology that enable sensory-impaired kids to experience the world."

The Horn Book Guide, Fall 2012

"The series' tone is consistently upbeat, though not falsely cheery."
