Importance of Inclusion:

Inclusion is more than just a buzzword; it's the foundation of a compassionate and accepting society. As parents, teachers, and caregivers, it's our responsibility to instill the value of inclusion in our children's hearts from an early age. A school that is inclusive welcomes children of all backgrounds, abilities, and differences. This creates a sense of belonging, fosters empathy, and empowers children to embrace their uniqueness while appreciating the diversity around them.

There were so many things I loved about this book. The representation is awesome! From autism to cerebral palsy as well as friends who were blind and deaf. There is a little girl in my daughter’s kindergarten class who wears hearing aids so this book sparked a lot of great learning and discussion because she has a friend who has superpowers! The story moved me. The illustrations brought everything to life. The life lessons that were taught are ones that are very important to my husband and I to teach. Bonus points that my daughter said, “This book is amazing!”
