Another Great Book for Kids
Here's a picture book that appeals to both girls and boys because the protagonist is a feisty girl and the story involves wheels. (I've seldom known a boy who could resist those.)
The book is "Zoom" by Robert Munsch and Michael Martchenko. It just happens that the girl needs a new electric wheelchair and can choose between various models. She picks the one that goes fastest of all - amazingly fast!
I like this book partly because her disability isn't the main focus. There's no appeal for sympathy, it's just a fun story. The illustrations are great, too.
