There were some things in life that even magic couldn't heal and for Zakari Ollivander, being deaf was not something that he wanted to be "healed" of anyways. Never considering himself disabled, Zakari considered himself just to be slightly different growing up. He still enjoyed partaking in activities that other children his age were involved in, even if he had to find his own way to do them. It was a challenge sometimes, but Zakari was always up for a challenge. As the grandson of a famous wandmaker, Zakari's biggest challenge yet would come to the young boy when he receives his acceptance letter to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Without knowing him, people were quick to pass their judgement, believing the boy would struggle and calling it a waste of time trying to teach magic to a boy who couldn't hear and hardly spoke. However, Zakari sets himself out to prove that just because he was hard of hearing, didn't mean he didn't have anything to say. It was everyone else around him that needed to learn how to listen.

I cannot stand people discriminating against people with disabilities or illnesses of any kind, which is why I learnt and am currently learning British sign language.

That was truly wonderful. I was recently married into a family where one of my nieces is deaf, but it doesn't stop her from loving life, and I'm working hard to learn ASL. Perhaps I'll read this to her when next i visit. :)

I work with children who are non-verbal and who prefer to sign as a way of communicating, this book is an incredible insight into their lives and difficulties. I congratulate you on your fantastic portrayal!!!

Second time reading this because it actually has become one of my favorite books.
                              It's so beautiful, and my sweet baby Zakari is the best.
