    1. This book is a photojournalism book featuring five children, all who are three, four, or five years of age. Two have cerebral palsy, one has spina bifida, one is blind, and one has Down’s Syndrome. They are shown with their physical therapists, families, and friends. They say some of the things they can do. The narrative is relentlessly upbeat. The difficulties they face are glossed over, but in most cases are not completely ignored.

    5. This book offers an interesting look at the lives of children with various disabilities. It depicts them as happy, busy children who can do lots of things, in fact, many of the things that we do. I like the matter of fact way their disabilities are presented and the additional information that is provided at the end. It's not overly informative about any of the afflictions; mostly it is useful to dispel the fears, and misunderstandings children may have about them. We enjoyed reading this story [...]
