Children's and young adult books that portray characters that are differently abled are important tools for helping all readers learn about, understand, and relate to people with different abilities. Today, authors strive to instill in young readers a positive, accepting impression of characters that have differing abilities. A selection of Canadian picture books and YA books will be shared that depicts characters who are differently abled in a positive and respectful way.
