Lucia & Lawrence

Lucia & Lawrence is a heartwarming and exceptional book that explores friendship, special needs, similarities, differences, inclusiveness and creativity.  It is a story of two people who find themselves becoming friends even though they see the world in different ways, one full of whimsy and creativeness, the other living in a world of numbers and structure. 

Not So Scary Bear

Ruth Waters book is fun, celebrates difference, and the importance of being true to yourself.  This well paced adventure saw me instantly charmed by bear; I love that he wears patterned woolen jumpers and behaves the opposite of what is expected of a bear.

What Makes Me a ME?

Ben Faulks has captured my imagination and got me to run with it to discover who I am, just as the boy in the book does.  The boy goes on a journey of self discovery and awareness that is portrayed in a way to make you laugh and be at ease with differences. 

Introducing Teddy – A Story About Being Yourself

Regardless of whether you agree with the content in this book, all bears, children and adults should NEVER feel ashamed about who they are.  I am a Christian and I am not ashamed of that so why should someone who is a different race, wears glasses, lives with Asperger’s, ADHD, physical differences, being scared, not being able to read or write, or just like bear…no longer being happy as Thomas but finding joy and peace in being Tilly.
