El Deafo by Cece Bell

This book is more oriented to children who have recently lost their hearing and their parents, however, I would recommend for all readers. 

The story follows Cece a small 4 year old rabbit how after coming ill with meningitis loses her hearing. The story follows her feelings as to dealing with being deaf and how she comes to view her first difference and then superpower. 

Hearing loss can be very challenging especially for children, however, as this book shows, there's nothing wrong with being deaf and vocalizing your feeling goes a long way to make children come to terms with their conditions.
