Parents In Touch
The premise of the Our Special World series is to help young children find out about diversity in the world about them. This book does this and much more. With just a few carefully worded sentences on each page, accompanied by well-chosen photographs. It succeeds in exploring a wide variety of issues about friendship, both positive ones and ones that are more difficult for children to cope with, very accesibly. This book is inclusive in a totally unforced way. It is particularly pleasing to see very positive images of children with physical and learning disabilities enjoying themselves with their friends.
