Series Made Simple
Children with disabilities deserve to be positively represented in the books they read. This excellent series in Spanish introduces readers to ability diversity in a compassionate and practical way. Readers will be drawn in by the book’s full-page color photographs of children from all racial and ethnic backgrounds and all abilities and will benefit from simple text and short chapters. Photographs show friends participating in activities together without marginalizing or separating children based on their ability. Friends and caregivers of children with disabilities will learn how to be inclusive thanks to suggestions for how to make everyone feel welcome in all situations. Translations are not only accurate, but the choice of words in this series contributes to its gentle, respectful tone. VERDICT Everyone is responsible for making all children feel welcome, and this exceptional series drives that message home.
