A book about attitudes. Most people are confused about how to react to those with disabilities. Their questions, misconceptions, doubts and fears are answered here – simply and straight from the heart – by a child with cerebral palsy. Sheila Dhir's willfully childlike line drawings are just as simple and powerful as the short poems. As a differently abled child's silent dialogue with society, the book offers a sensitive and sensible way of helping children understand disability, and the strengths of those who are differently abled.

An ideal book to read together

This is an ideal book to read together- parent and child -cuddling up with a leisurely, dialoguing mood prevailing between them. It would help the child understand the world with a sense of security and hand holding. That said then, ‘why are you afraid to hold my hand’ could well read ‘I love it when you hold my hand and talk to me’!!!!Youngindiabooks.com
