26 Jul Children’s Books for Disability Pride Month
Have you ever felt different? Maybe like no one understands what you’re going through? This is what it’s like for many people who experience a disability. A disability can be physical, developmental, emotional or all of the above. It’s simply something that causes a person to have some kind of limit on what they can do. But people with disabilities can do A LOT. They can be brave, smart and talented in many ways!
Here are five titles for children that celebrate people with disabilities and their experiences:
Focused by Alyson Gerber
Helen Keller by Leslie Garrett
Having a Disability by Louise Spilsbury
Autism and Me: Sibling Stories by Ousie Shapiro
Niagara Falls, or Does It? by Henry Winkler
Whether you are experiencing a disability yourself or want to learn more, reading can help us understand how disabled people survive and thrive!
