"The stories are told in the child’s voice and are accompanied by photographs of daily activities such as going to the zoo or preparing for a holiday. Photos also show family members, friends, pets, and other important details of the child’s day. Each story highlights the ways the children are becoming more independent in their activities."

Supporting Educators/Promoting Inclusion:
Each book shares a delightful true and inclusive story of a child living with a disability or developmental delay. A list of classroom activities is included in each book. These activities promote inclusion, build skills needed for self-determination and help students gain an understanding of disabilities.
“Each of the books tells the unique and personal story of a child with special needs. These stories fill a gap in children’s literature in that they provide a point of view that is often missing, the voice of a child with a disability. These stories are ones that the students in my classes at K-State are eager to share with their students.”
~Marilyn Kaff, Associate Professor of Special Education
Each book contains a Family Guide to enhance the reader’s understanding of how the child living with a disability in the book is ‘finding their way’ toward living a life as a self-determined adult.
“This book is wonderful! It shows how every child has their own interests and desires as well as how families work together to promote self-determination skills. Plus, my three year old loves the animals at the zoo, too!”
~Kelly Crowl, Special Education Teacher, reviewing 'Kaitlyn Wants To See Ducks'
Promoting Skills Needed For Self-Determination:
Each true story demonstrates how of a child can gain skills needed for self-determination within family and community settings.
“Isiah’s perseverance to participate and determination to succeed make a Physical Therapist’s job easy and have been an inspiration to many others and me. This book aptly captures the drive that fuels Isiah and his family.”
