    What Is A Disability? discusses what it means to have a disability
    and help children to understand it. It explains how people in
    wheelchairs don’t move the way we do, they just move differently,
    but they are still normal human beings who want to live their life.
    They just can’t walk, that’s all, writes Conor Lynam.

    When people have difficulty reading, or writing, they may have a
    disability. It doesn’t mean they are stupid, it just means they
    need a little more time to learn, that’s all. I think that this
    booklet is a good way to tell children about disability, with just
    the right amount of illustrations and text.

    What Is Contact? discusses children who no longer live with their
    birth parents. The guide explains how children feel about their
    foster families and ways to keep in touch with their birth
    families.

    This booklet could use a little more from the people whom it talks
    about and their points of view.
