Dudley's Solo

Dudley's Solo by Tiffany Alexander is a fun, colorful and entertaining children's book. But it also contains some good lessons. Dudley is part of a group called the Children's Band that is preparing for a concert. Dudley is deaf, but he wants to participate. With some encouragement from his family and friends, he joins the concert by signing a verse of "He's got the whole world in His hands". Since I have a hearing loss (not complete) I could relate to Dudley and his struggle to fit in. I love the way Dudley's friends include him.

Dudley's Solo encourages kids to believe in themselves, embrace differences, and never give up on something they really want.

As soon as my kids saw Dudley's Solo, they insisted on reading it. The colors are vibrant and full. Most of the page is covered with pictures. It is a fun read with a deeper meaning.
