My Three Best Friends and Me, Zulay
Author: Cari Best, illustrated by Vanessa Brantley-Newton
Zulay and her three best friends are all in the same first grade class and study the same things, even though Zulay is blind. When their teacher asks her students what activity they want to do on Field Day, Zulay surprises everyone when she says she wants to run a race. With the help of a special aide and the support of her friends, Zulay does just that.
