Today, like all days, Olivia wakes to a silent world. Outside her window, birds dance upon the branches of the giant gum tree. She follows the delicious smell of breakfast downstairs, walks to school with her friends and is greeted by her favourite teachers. In the music room, everyone knows which instrument she will choose.
This is Olivia’s Voice.
Olivia’s Voice is the stunning debut picture book from author/illustrator team Mike Lucas and Jennifer Harrison. With evocative language and beautifully detailed illustrations, Lucas and Harrison bring to life the vivid experiences of Olivia, a young deaf girl, as she explores a silent world full of vibrant colour, friendship and fun. Olivia’s Voice allows underrepresented deaf children to see themselves in a story and gives hearing children an opportunity to expand their understanding of the world.
