A First Look At... Book
Don't Call Me Special
Publisher: Barron's Educational Series (2002)
This book looks at disability mainly from the perspective of the disabled child, their families and helpers. However, it will also be relevant to able-bodied children, giving them a platform to better understand and learn to support the disabled children around them. While the overall tone is positive, the book acknowledges that it can be very frustrating to be disabled in a world built for the able-bodied. It looks at the full range of emotions which a disabled child may feel, as well as the sometimes complex feelings of people around them. A sensitive book, beautifully illustrated by Lesley Harker.
