  • What a lovely story, will have to show it to the children at Christmas. I wish learning to sign could be as easy as a wish. I am trying to encourage the children I look after to learn some signs.

  • It is good to watch this little girl smile and accept that she does not need "new ears". I believe the world is better when we accept our differences and try to make the best of what we have. I also have started BSL level 1 and was happy to understand most of the signs.

  • This is a fantastic modern fairytale for the whole family, but it is really special to see my deaf daughter connect with Libby. She watches it every day, and it really helps to encourage her signing.

  • Absolutely lovely film. Very good techniques too for explaining death to kids too. Love the little girl but everyone in this film was great. Fantastic special effects. Good actors. All believable. Loved the wicked stepmother! Great all round production which will never go out of date. Well done BSLBT for commissioning it, Remark Media for producing it,, Rebecca Atkinson for writing it and Louis Neethling for directing it.
