What if the things that make you different are the things that make you wonderful?
In a world that celebrates sameness, being different can leave a special needs child with many questions.
· "Why am I the way I am?"
· "Where do I belong?"
· "Is it OK if I don't look, think, or act like those around me?"
Children long to be accepted and loved, but sometimes feel that being different means they don't fit in.
The Wonderful Way You Are creates a safe place for parents and caregivers to have a conversation about difference. Based on real special needs children, the book's vivid illustrations and lyrical text help each child see their own thoughts and feelings reflected on the page.
When special needs children know they are wonderful, not in spite of their differences, but because of them, they are equipped to not just survive, but thrive.
Every child deserves to feel fully loved, fully seen, and fully known.
I like every part of you.
I'll shout it near and far
and tell the world I love you
the wonderful way you are.
What special needs parents are saying about the book:
"Beautiful. Such a touching tribute to a mother's love and dreams for her child who is born knowing what her struggle/gift will be. This reminds me of Love You Forever or the Giving Tree books, where the parent and child can experience it in such a different way. It is moving from both perspectives." - Meredith W.
"The book is amazing. I love how well you captured the unique things that make our children special. I recognized the spectrum child who is just like my son right away! Thank you for this book!" - Laura S.
"I just loved how much your words encouraged confidence. Confidence to live out a life of special needs and confidence to respond in a caring way to special needs." - Jessie S.
Sarah Brooks is a special needs mom to a warrior princess and three ninja sons. When she's not writing or recording music, you can find her dodging Mt. Laundry to sneak away with a cup of hot tea, some dark chocolate, and a good book.
