    Ben, King of the River by David Gifaldi is a brief look into a world that most of us are not all that familiar with.

    Ben, King of the river is a story that reflects back on a lot of children with a disability. I really enjoy that David Gifaldi illustrated the book very well compared to real life situations. The fact that it is a children's book with a very strong message helps young readers to identify this sort of activity. Ben is a young boy who has developmental disabilities. At his age he can't identify all the letters of the alphabets, yet his parents and older brother treat him as well as everyone else. [...]

    This picture book is about a brother named Chad that is very excited for his family's camping trip. His brother Ben has a disability and sometimes acts out, he hopes his brother can behave on this camping trip so it is not ruined. Through out this book you can see a lot of different traits of Chad, he seems annoyed, and angry, but also caring and protective. I think this story shows compassion, and love, but also acceptance, especially for families who deal with a disability. Children can also l [...]

    Another book to help alleviate stereotypes associated with people with special needs. This book will take pressure off anyone with an exceptional friend or family member. It is vital that the books we choose uplift members of society that are normally ostracized, which is just what this book does from a realistic perspective.
