LoveReading4Kids Says

Written by debut author, Louise Gooding and vividly illustrated by a team of artists who all identify as physically or neurologically diverse, this inspiring anthology is a testament to lived experience.

Having three daughters who were all physically or neurologically diverse and having realised her own missed diagnosis as a child, Louise states her intention of improving visibility for every child who feels different. She wanted everyone to know about the amazing achievements of the disabled people she found in her research. Each double page features a quote, a beautiful illustration, the life story, and achievements of the individual and a simple explanation of their diagnosis.

This anthology features 40 figures including well known personalities like Ellie Symonds, Stephen Hawking, and Helen Keller and lesser well-known ones such as Naoki Higashida, Sudha Chandran, and Nkosi Johnson and the stories cover a huge variety of different conditions, including some rare conditions such as progeria and Treacher Collins Syndrome.

It is the positive tone that makes this book so special. So often one is met with the trope of success being achieved ‘despite’ a disability or condition. Here the stories are told in a positive way. The condition is part of who they are and while it may make things harder, it is not by any means the thing that holds them back. This empowering anthology encourages every child to celebrate their uniqueness and for us all to recognise our potential to achieve whatever we want.
