Not So Different: What You Really Want to Ask About Having a Disability by Shane Burcaw and photographs by Matt Carr is a must read. If I was in charge of the world, every third grade teacher would be required to read it to her class.
Shane answers questions kids are curious about; but may not ask out of fear of offending someone. You know . . . how one eats, poops showers and moves. The crisp photographs show Shane’s just another guy who needs to do some things differently.
However, don’t wait until third grade to read it with your child. I want it required reading in third grade because this is when children start becoming more self-conscious about appearances.
Shane is awesome. The sooner you meet him the better.
