I can’t… the words… too excited. Oh my gosh. TOO MUCH. TOO AWESOME.
Interdependence! Disability history! Outright naming and demanding disability justice! Disabled bodies! Calling in environmental activists for ignoring and trampling the humanity of disabled people!

Okay, I’ll admit the 7 and 9-year olds found this disengaging (not quite a narrative, no humor/suspense hook, and the straw ban controversial could have been scripted better for readers who aren’t already familiar with the issue).

All these badasses we’ve been boosting for years, now connected and illustrated for kids outside the grownup-sphere?! EXCITING.
The end notes are FANTASTIC and there’s a 62 page companion learning guide on their website. All this access, all this love.
