Coach Bob & Me is a picture book by Catherine Gibson, with full color illustrations by Janice Hechter in a story of overcoming obstacles and gaining confidence.
What's Your Something Special , also by Catherine Gibson, illustrated by Mary Fletcher, shows the power of perseverance and puts children on the road to discovering the unique qualities inside each of us.
I had a chance to review both books, and they are wonderful books for kids to read (or to read to kids). Both books deal with the sensitive issue of physical handicaps well. Children with or without physical disabilities can read examples of a child or adult who is handicapped, yet still has something to offer and can inspire others.
