>I decided to start the read-a-thon off with something super easy and read my friend Hannah Ensor’s new books which are released today. I’m also going to pop up to her book launch a bit later and I’m looking forward to it.
Hannah is a writer and illustrator who uses her trademark stickman style to use humour to education about disability. Her two newest books which come out today are Welly Walks and Biscuit Baking – stories aimed at children aged between 2 and 5. Each includes a character in a wheelchair but at no point are the words “disabled”, “disability” or “wheelchair” mentioned in the stories. The wheelchair user just is.
Who help children enjoy fun and full childhoods, get the right wheelchairs for them at the right time, and learn the skills they need – all without pity or patronisation. With loads of input from the kidz themselves, it is run with humour, respect, positivity, professionalism and cheek. A charity after my own heart.
