Product Description

When little Kate goes to the park with her mother, she notices a boy named Timmy, whose look and behavior is "different" from the other kids. The more Kate stares, the more uneasy she becomes. "What's wrong with him?" she asks. Then her mother begins a conversation that helps Kate learn something about what it's like to be disabled. And when Kate approaches Timmy, she find out that they have more in common than she would have imagined. A frienship blooms, and Kate discovers for herself that while Timmy may be disabled, there's nothing "wrong" with him at all.

    I just read this book. It is a very good intro to sharing the 'Special Needs' topic. Very well done. As a mother of a special needs child I recommend this book. It adresses the topic straight on and in a caring manner.
