I CAN, TOO! is a wonderful story of new friendship between two children with diverse abilities.

Piper and Kayla love to move. They ride bikes, glide on ice, swoosh down mountains and much more — each in her own way. While Piper pedals her tricycle with her feet, Kayla uses her hands to move her trike forward. While Kayla coasts across the ice on a sled, Piper sails along on skates. Join Kayla and Piper as they play together, explore their world and make new friends.

The inspiration for I Can, Too! came from my daughter, who was born with spina bifida. On a visit to the mall after she received her first wheelchair, a young boy pointed, asking his mother, “Why is that girl in a wheelbarrow?” I welcomed questions so the unknown could be named and understood and children could get to know my daughter.

Shining a much-needed spotlight on kids who use special gear to navigate the world, I Can, Too!, will delight readers of all abilities with its affirming story of inclusion, while also inviting readers to learn more about adaptive devices in the back matter.

Moi aussi, je peux! is a heartwarming story about friendship and inclusion.

Léane et Emma adorent bouger. Elles font du vélo, du patin à glace, dévalent des montagnes et plus encore, chacune à leur façon. Alors que Léane pédale sur son tricycle, Emma utilise ses mains pour faire avancer le sien. Pendant qu’Emma se promène sur la glace dans une luge, Léane l’accompagne avec ses patins. Jouez avec Léane et Emma, explorez leur monde et faites-vous de nouveaux amis!

Moi aussi, je peux! offre une visibilité bien nécessaire aux enfants qui utilisent des équipements spéciaux pour naviguer dans le monde. Cette histoire positive d’inclusion ravira les lecteurs de tous les niveaux tout en les invitant à en apprendre davantage sur les dispositifs d’aide.
