I Sit In A Wheelchair… But I Will Be Okay!

Five year old Penny Brown is slightly different from the other boys and girls in her kindergarten class. She must sit in a wheelchair and cannot jump rope or slide down the big slide like all of her classmates, which make her very sad. However, Penny finds support from her friends and family. Her friend Amy helps Penny focus on the activities that she can do in her wheelchair, like kick a ball with her left foot, play with dolls, and draw beautiful pictures. Her mommy and daddy also help her to be kind to other people and to know when to ask for help. When Josh, a new student, comes to school, will Penny find comfort in something they have in common? Ages 5 and up.
