Reviews - What do customers think about Helping Kids Include Kids With Disabilities?
Was a great success Mar 3, 2006
We took these books to South Africa and gave them away at the first ever Conference on Ministering to Children with Disabilities. They were "door prizes" and were very well received.
Easy Read, Easy to Implement Aug 9, 2005
I am the Nursery Coordinator and serve on the Ministries Committee at our reformed Presbyterian church. I am also the mother of a 13 year old son with special needs. We are utilizing this valuable resource teaching children at our church about disabilities in general and how to befriend special needs' kids not just tolerate them.
One of the best things about this book is that it is a simple read and very easy to implement. In my opinion, it's a great starting point for introducing a special needs ministry.
