School Library Journal - 04/01/2021 Gr 1–5—These fantastic books, written in first person from the perspective of a real child whose photo and short biography are featured at the end of each title, explain what it is like to have a disability, how to accommodate for success, and how a person is more than their disability. Children with the same disability are shown to have varying traits and skills, and the person-first language makes children with disabilities relatable. With advice for interacting with a person with a disability, helpful terms, and further resources, these books are for readers with and without disabilities. While the explanation of the condition is well done, a standout feature of these books is the narrator's positive self-image, the acceptance of limitations, the passion for hobbies, and the positive view of school and therapeutic support. VERDICT A must-purchase that will teach about and encourage positive images of children with disabilities. Truly exceptional. - Copyright 2021 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
