Going through my shelf of picture books from my childhood, I found a few other disability-related books that I thought I should share as being important to me growing up with Moebius syndrome:
I remember reading this book over and over as a young child, obviously it spoke to me and my experiences growing up with many medical issues.
A great book for siblings of children with medical conditions, but I also remember liking it as a child.
Also important to me growing up and beginning to learn about disability history and activism.
Overall, I think it’s really important for children to have access to the larger community of which they are a part. Pre-internet (!) – at least for me – that mainly came in the form of stories. Although I would get together with my community once or twice a year, I could read about them every night and feel connected and a part of something larger than myself.
