Awesome book for the classroom!  Nov 29, 2007
This book provides an up front look at how to help children deal with meeting someone who is differently abled. It is worded so young children
in preschool can understand what they should or could do if they meet
someone who is different from them. The pictures provide an additional learning tool to discuss how the children are feeling on each page. Overall I think this book is a 5 star book and could be used just about
Great Book  Nov 19, 2007
I loved this book. It is difficult to find books that discuss disabled people. This book showed the many ways in which people with and without disabilities are alike. It also told children how to become acquainted with another child and that they might become good friends. This book talked about people who need different types of assistive technology devices like wheelchairs or talking devices. Overall, this was an excellent book. I would use it in my preschool classroom to introduce different types of disabilities to the students.
Let's talk about it: Extraordinary friends  Apr 23, 2002
I ordered this book for my sister, who's 2 year old son has cerebral palsy. My idea was that she could place it in her local day care center that my nephew attends so that the other kids could have some of their questions answered about kids with special needs. This book really fit the is clear and concise, and seemed to address lots of questions that I have heard other children asking. Other than just seeing that something is "wrong" or different, maybe after reading the book they will realize that diversity is a part of life and that people with special needs can be just as fun and interesting as everyone else! The book really helped put into words what I would like kids to know about meeting and interacting with kids with disabilites. I also ordered "Someone special just like you", but found the Extraordinary friends book to be a much better choice for my particular needs.
