Children will be introduced in a non intrusive way to someone with a disability. The Bravest Boy I Ever Knew will help children to better understand and not be scared of their differences. This story also shows that disabled children can do things just as well as able-bodied children and that they can have fun too.
I read this to my daughters and their friends. My four year old said at the end. “So he can do anything I can do. Wow!” My nine year old even enjoyed it. She giggled at the thought of Michael and his friend racing! This book is a perfect opportunity for parents, teachers or whoever is reading this to start a discussion with their children about people with disabilities.
I recommend this book to everyone with a child. You can purchase this book at http://www.amazon.com/Bravest-Boy-Ever-Knew/dp/1615665277
