StepfamiliesBook - 1997
How do you get to know someone in a wheelchair? Is it okay to ask questions when you see someone who is different from you?Written for the child without special needs--the child with the questions--this book opens up a difficult subject to discussion. Fred Rogers challenges the stereotypes that often plague children with special needs and celebrates six children who are extraordinary friends. Share this book with all children--to spark communication, to attack the stigma, to bridge the gap between children with different abilities. Mister Rogers is the perfect person to write a book like this, with respect and the same gentleness that has characterized his television show for decades.
