Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
One of the first books for children who are curious about disabilities is Quinsey's Why Does That Man Have Such a Big Nose? When children are old enough to point and ask question in the grocery store, they are ready for this book. In addition to teaching children more appropriate means of finding answers to their questions, the book's photographs and text explains differences that children are apt to wonder about. Everything from "hairy faces," to obesity, to wheelchairs are discussed in a question-answer format. This book also addresses the importance of the diversity in life.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3 A collection of short descriptions of some people who are physically ``different'' from others. Each description contains a photograph of the person, a brief paragraph about how he or she is different, and a related question or activity, such as ``Look at your parents and see if you can guess how tall you will grow to be.'' The subjects include a man with a beard, a heavy woman, a black man, a dwarf, and two handicapped men. The introductory note states that the book was written to help parents and teachers answer questions about differences and is meant to be a springboard to discussions. However, the variety of subjects selected is too broad and the explanations too simplistic. Questions about physical differences can be answered honestly without the aid of this book, and if one needs to explain about handicaps it is better to deal with them in more depth. Margaret C. Howell, Cameron Elementary School, Fairfax County, Va.
