Aunt Katie's Visit
Banister, K.R. (2003). Aunt Katie's Visit. St. Louis, Mo.: Access-4-All, Inc.
Elementary School students everywhere will enjoy Katie Banister's Aunt Katie's Visit. This book lets kids know what a regular "day in the life" is like for Aunt Katie, who became paralyzed from the chest down in 1990. It also does a great job of teaching kids to see the person and not just the disability. This upbeat story is a great way to help kids be more accepting of others and foster disability awareness.
