Rolling Along: The Story Of Taylor And His Wheelchair

Taylor and Tyler are twin brothers and best friends.  But  the twins are different in one significant way: Taylor has cerebral  palsy, while Tyler does not.  Through Taylor’s eyes we see how much  effort he must expend to strengthen his legs, which are weak. He explains how valuable his new wheelchair is because it helps him maneuver more easily and do the things he want to do, like go to  school and play basketball with his brother Tyler. The goal of the book is to see into the child’s world, understand the physical challenge the child faces, and learn how an assistive device can empower the child to overcome the limitations posed by his or her  disability. Ages 6 and up.
