My Wheelchair is a Real Chair (Book Review)
Often the verses contain useful hints, such as to ask before pushing the chair. Other pages have little wheelchair-specific content, emphasizing instead that people in wheelchairs do more-or-less everything. The last few pages invite the reader to draw pictures of what they and their wheelchair-using friends can do together.
This appears to be a very useful book for children with a schoolmate, neighbor or other potential friend who can use some help figuring out what to do. It's direct but not heavyhanded, and for this it deserves top marks!
