Synopsis

A beautifully illustrated picture book that teaches children about a range of disabilities. It challenges the stereotypes that are often formed during childhood and explains how people overcome their disabilities and live happy and full lives.

Notes for parents and teachers at the back of the book provide valuable advice for how to share this book with your child or class.

Written by a trained psychotherapist, journalist and parent, and illustrated by an experienced children's book artist, this title is part of an acclaimed and successful series of picture-book non-fiction for Early Years. Books in the series give advice and promote interaction between children, parents, and teachers on a wide variety of personal, social and emotional issues. They are excellent tools for teachers to use during classroom discussions.

Beautifully illustrated ... a great picture book to read with really young children
