Everyone does things a little differently! But we're all still human.
Differently Abled is about Sierra, a girl with Down's Syndrome who is discouraged by her disability because she feels like she doesn't fit in, and has no friends because of it. However, she refuses to let her disability discourage her from overcoming life's challenges and is determined to be included.
When Sierra decided to voice her opinion, others realized that being different doesn't mean you can't do something. People listened, and everyone soon learned that extending kindness, patience, and acceptance are the keys to humanity.

Differently Abled is a children's book based on the author's daughter Sierra with Down's Syndrome. Sierra goes to school where she doesn't fit in or have friends and the other kid's don't think she can play with them because she has a disability. I checked out the author's page and you can get this book in English, Spanish, French, and Chinese. Seems like a good one to add to school libraries! Thanks to netgalley for a free copy in exchange for an honest review!
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing this book in exchange for an honest review. This is a cute kids book based on the author's daughter who has Downs Syndrome. Sierra dreads going to school because other kids won't include her, saying she's "disabled". But sweet Sierra proves to couple of girls playing hopscotch that she too can learn and play with them. Good moral to the story.
The title drew me in as I love this instead of saying "disabled." I loved following Sierra's story and any child is able to make connections with their own difficulties that they have faced. Hopefully books like these lead to a more empathetic population.
A heart-warming story with an important message for any kid about acceptance, empathy, and kindness. Our main character Sierra faces a difficult social challenge, but by speaking up for herself and through others' caring is able to overcome this hurdle.
