Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennie DeGenaro
Children who wear leg braces, and playmates who know and see children in braces will be better informed as to why this is happening after reading this book. Leg braces support weak or injured legs. There are twenty-four pages, two chapters, a Glossary, three recommended books, ways to navigate the internet for help in finding information, and an index. The photographs are colorful, real, and helpful in understanding the text. Explanations of why children wear braces and how they are just like other children are meaningful. Children in braces are like all children in that they enjoy having fun with friends. They have pets to care for like other children. Children with braces often have helpful sessions with physical therapists who teach them how to use walkers or crutches. These aids help the children go for walks and do most things other children can do. This book will be a fine addition in primary school libraries on shelves for health and social studies. The author, Lola M. Shaefer, wrote Some Kids Are Blind, Some Kids are Deaf, and Some Kids Use Wheelchairs, as well as the book described above. Reviewer: Jennie DeGenaro

This book instills confidence and courage to any child who has fears about wearing a leg brace. I purchased this book for my niece the same week she was going in to get her leg brace. Like any child she was afraid of how she would look, of what other kids would say, and how the brace would not allow her to do anything. After reading this book she walks with her head held high. She is not afraid of showing off her butterfly pattern brace and most of all she realized she is not alone. :-)
