Maya Makes A Friend
Wins Mom's Choice Award!

This book is for both children with and without disabilities. It is about a little girl named Maya who turns a regular day at the park into a special and memorable experience that we can all learn from. Through an illustrated and kid-friendly story, we follow Maya as she makes a new friend. With Talking Points on the last page, the book provides adults the opportunity to have a discussion with children about differences, acceptance, bravery, and kindness.

Our books are designed to spread the message of acceptance, awareness, and kindness to all children. Our readers should understand that people with special needs have both skills and challenges, but just like everyone else they want to be accepted, understood, and befriended. People with special needs might not look, act, or move the way that others expect, but with some patience and understanding, a friendship can be made. We are all more alike than we are different and we should all be treated with respect and kindness.
