SUPER KENA Children's Book
Super Kena is the new age Super Hero for all kids.
Super Kena is a children’s book, written by Becky Cymbaluk and illustrated by Zuzana Svobodová, which tells the story of a little girl with a hearing loss. After Kena has a bad day at school when the other children tease her for her hearing aids, her mother explains to her that they tease her because they just don’t understand the importance of Kena’s hearing aids. Those hearing aids give her ears super powers! The two of them point out differences in some of the other students, and Kena gets the idea to start a team of super heroes.
A delightfully entertaining picture book for children ages 4-8, "Super Kena - A Girl Made Fierce With Hearing Aids" is unreservedly recommended for families, daycare centers, preschools, elementary schools, and community library picture book collections in general, and Children's Special Needs Books in particular.
“Finally! A perfect book is released that addresses all ABILITIES and teaches kids that they are all more alike than different. Super Kena is the new age Super Hero for all kids. The author has taken a sensitive subject and made all of her readers feel like Super Heroes! I love this book and it will be my new go-to book for kids!”
“Whether you’re trying to teach your child empathy for other people’s differences, or have a child who is differently-abled who needs to know they aren’t alone, Super Kena is here to save the day! With a relatable story and charming illustrations, Super Kena is a fantastic story for children and families to enjoy over and over again.”
"As an elementary school teacher, I am always on the look-out for books that are mirrors and windows for my students. Students need to see themselves in books – books read to them or read by them – to empower themselves. They also need to be able to look out in the world, beyond themselves, to understand other people. This book offers both mirrors and windows. I love how Kena was able to look beyond herself to her classmates who were differently-abled and pull them into a team! Kena is an inspiration! Share this book with your children, grandchildren, neighbors, students, nieces and nephews . . . the list goes on and on. It will make a difference in our world!”
