Presented in both Spanish and English, this is the story of Lucy, whose older brother, Omar, has borrowed her colored pencils for quite some time so she decides to ask Omar to give them back. Lucy talks with Omar, but Omar feigns confusion. We see both Lucy, who appears to be wearing a hearing aid, and Omar speak with symbols in speech bubbles. Omar smugly tells Lucy that she needs to be a better communicator because, even though she’s deaf and he knows its difficult for her to talk, he can’t understand her. He also tells Lucy that he can’t understand her when she’s “flapping her hands” at him because he doesn’t know sign language. Frustrated, Lucy uses a tuba to blow a loud sound at her Omar, asking if he now understands what she wants, which he does. The book’s colorful illustrations effectively show the characters’ emotions. What the reader learns about hearing impairment from this story is that Lucy, who is deaf, doesn’t communicate very well on her own, and is forced to find other means of making sound to appropriately convey her thoughts and feelings. Omar is clearly bullying Lucy, but the resolution is less than satisfying. Although a fun story, readers may see Lucy’s communication skills as a problem, which makes this book not recommended.
