A wonderful story of new friendship between two children with diverse abilities.
Piper and Kayla love to move. They ride bikes, glide on ice, swoosh down mountains and much more. Join Kayla and Piper as they play together, explore their world and make new friends.The inspiration for I Can, Too! comes from the author's daughter, who was born with spina bifida. On a visit to the mall after her child received her first wheelchair, a young boy pointed, asking his mother, "Why is that girl in a wheelbarrow?" Karen welcomed questions so the unknown could be named and understood and children could get to know her daughter.Shining a much-needed spotlight on kids who use special gear to navigate the world, I Can, Too! will delight readers of all abilities with its affirming story of inclusion, while also inviting readers to learn more about adaptive devices in the back matter.
