And here is a message from the author, Kathie Schneider, who is funding ABLE to do this project:
I wrote Your Treasure Hunt for parents and children like you and yours and am proud to report that it received a Moonbeam award. Would you like a free copy of the print edition plus a Braille copy of the text?
Getting through life is pictured as a treasure hunt in this book for young children with and without disabilities. Realities of having a disability like working extra hard, being teased, and asking for, accepting and giving help are pictured. Constructive ways of dealing with the frustrating parts of having a disability are featured as well as techniques for building a positive self image that includes the disability. Although obstacles are squarely faced, this book emphasizes that each child can find both small and big treasures on his/her life’s treasure hunt
This book is written for children ages four to twelve. It is unique because of its forthright discussion of the hassles of having a disability and for the simple concrete suggestions it makes for dealing with each hassle. The focus is on using each child’s strengths to move forward on life’s treasure hunt.
As a lifelong Braille reader, I would love to give you and your children the joy of reading this book together.
