- Publisher's Summary
- All children ask questions that are difficult to answer. What is the best response when a child points out that a disabled child or adult looks "different?" How can a parent talk about differences while emphasising the things all people have in common? In this book, remarkable for its sensitivity and generosity of spirit, Maria Shriver uses her storytelling art to provide some answers. She tells the story of eight-year-old Kate, who, while at the park with her mother, notices Timmy, a boy who looks and behaves differently from the other children she knows. Kate wonders if there is something "wrong" with Timmy, but when her mother introduces her to Timmy, the seeds of friendship are planted. Soon Kate and Timmy are laughing and playing together, and Kate learns that she and Timmy have a lot in common - that in fact, there is nothing "wrong" with Timmy at all.
