Conhecimento Comum



This one is a children's book about an 11-year-old with Cerebral Palsey. It felt a bit slow through the first half but probably did require the build-up. It is quite insightful.

In this realistic historical fiction, young Stella and her younger brother, JoJo, are the first to spot a resurgence of the KKK in her community, as they practice burning a cross one night across the lake from her home. What will the consequences be if her father goes to vote as he plans?

Read aloud, or Middle education
Melody has Cerebral Palsy, and can't talk, but she is smart, and she has a lot to say and no words to use.
This book would be great for a read aloud for fourth graders or for casual reading for 5th - 12th graders.

This book would be appropriate for middle school because of the length.
This book is about a young girl with cerebral palsy and a photographic memory as she learns to navigate school and longing to be noticed as just another student.
I would recommend this book in a classroom as a form of disability representation or to bring awareness to cerebral palsy.
