Someone Special, Just Like You

Text by Tricia Brown; Photographs by Fran Ortiz; Bibliography by Effie Lee Morris

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

Brown and Ortiz show that the differences that seem to separate children with handicaps from others are not important. What is important is the common delight in life--a desire to love, learn and play, and to be accepted for themselves as other children are.
