Babella is ready to use her red umbrella and her blue hearing aid to listen to the pitter patter of rain. She's just missing one thing -- a rain cloud. Join Babella and the friends who help her wait in this soothing story about friendship, patience and listening.

The six Ling Sounds, [m], [ah], [oo], [ee], [sh] and [s], are part of almost every word we say. Babella uses a hearing aid to hear all sounds, including these six Ling Sounds.

Like Babella, children who are deaf or hard of hearing may use hearing aids or cochlear implants to hear. Each of the six Ling Sounds can be found in Babella’s Umbrella so children can practice them as they develop their hearing and language skills.
