Gr 2-5-Josh has a medical condition called achondroplasia, a type of dwarfism that results in short limbs and short stature. As evidenced in this photo-essay, everyday living can be a challenge. However, with a confident attitude, supportive family and friends, and adjustments to physical surroundings, the teen is well adjusted and a school leader. The color photographs of him at home, at school, and at play are wonderful. Readers will find it heartening to see this young man so well integrated into all aspects of community life. The positive tone, the photos of successful adults with Josh's condition, and a letter explaining dwarfism from the president of Little People of America show that, no matter what, the message "never sell yourself short" is for all of us.-Pamela K.
