Please welcome Jo Meserve Mach and Vera Lynne Stroup-Rentier for #ReadYourWorld Book Jam 2017. Their book, Neema Wants to Learn, relates to their list of eight books for kids with disabilities. We are giving away a copy of Neema Wants to Learn. Please fill out the Rafflecopter at the bottom to win.
The books we publish focus on inclusion and honoring children with disabilities by sharing their stories. I have selected picture books that I feel represent individuals with disabilities as they should be represented.
