Today we’re taking a deep dive into inclusion in children’s media. Bob interviews an author/illustrator team about their book, Best Day Ever! It’s written by Marilyn Singer and illustrated by Leah Nixon. The book is about a little boy and her dog, and this little boy happens to be in a wheelchair. It’s the most indirect disability inclusion story Bob has seen, and it’s the kind of representation that is often missing from children’s literature. Discover why Singer, author of over 120 children’s books, decided to write this book now. Learn more about why she teamed up with wheelchair user and artist Leah Nixon. And you won’t want to miss a special reading from the author herself! PLUS Bob asks Singer and Nixon about their best days ever.
