"I was born, like my seven brothers and sisters, in a house atop a hill overlooking lovely Bras d'Or Lake". So begins Christy MacKinnon's story of life as a little girl in 19th-century Nova Scotia, Canada. Through wonderful images created with her own words and her watercolors, she tells of a simple, charming life on the family farm; of learning with her father, the master of her town's one-room schoolhouse; and of her eventual travel to Halifax to attend a "special" school. As with many children in the 1800s, Christy became deaf after a "seige of whooping cough", a sickness common then, which she barely survived. Silent Observer opens to young readers a world rarely seen today. They will be thrilled by her family's ride in a horse-drawn sleigh over a frozen northern lake, and her close encounters with a noisy bull and a "gentleman" ram. Children and adults alike will warm to her cheerful memories of the simple pleasure of playing in a flower-filled field with her brothers and sisters. They will discover, too, that young Christy crossed paths with many vital figures of the day, beginning with frequent visits by Alexander Graham Bell, and later with a momentous meeting with Helen Keller. Silent Observer is a delightful memoir told as it was seen through the eyes of a lively child. It is also a meaningful record of life for a deaf child and her family in the far reaches of Canada at the end of an era. Silent Observer is a beautiful, sensitive story that is sure to be enjoyed by everyone.… (mer)

Silent Observer is a biography about a young girl who lost all of her hearing after recovering from whooping cough in the 1800's. It describes how she learns to cope with her disability and eventually go on to graduate from the Halifax School for the Deaf. This story is wonderful for use in the classroom because the pictures are all hand-drawn and the story itself is easy to understand. It is written in a way that allows children to connect with the character because it is actually written in 1st person. I think this story would be good for children 2nd grade and up because of its length and the discussion that could follow.

A story about a child who becomes deaf when diagnosed with whooping cough. She struggles through life adjusting to deafness in her realtionship with family. Her major problem was being understood and understanding hearing individuals. Deaf children are common in our society, and need to be accepted just as normal people are.
