When Charley goes to the playground and sees Emma, a girl with limb differences who gets around in a wheelchair, he doesn’t know how to react at first. But after he and Emma start talking, he learns that different isn’t bad, sad, or strange–different is just different, and different is great! This delightful book will help kids think about disability, kindness, and how to behave when they meet someone who is different from them.

Amy Webb is an artist, writer, mother and creator of the popular blog This Little Miggy Stayed Home. As a special needs mom she advocates for the disability and special needs community through her writings and interviews on her blog. Her work has been featured in The Mighty, A Cup of Jo, Design*Sponge as well as interviews in DesignMom, MotherMag and the print publication Lunch Lady Magazine. Amy lives with her handsome husband and three beautiful daughters in Cincinnati, Ohio.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  Most of my kids have special needs and I know firsthand how terrible the community can really be.   I am happy that this book sheds light on how to get past a disability and see a person.  I think this should be read in schools and there are adults that can still learn from it.
