与众不同的朋友 Special Friends (Set of 6)
After searching for many years for beautiful Chinese books
featuring families and kids with special needs and disabilities -
I'm excited to finally find them and introduce them to you.
This bookset includes stories about
💖 A child with autism
💖 A child who is blind
💖 A child with cleft lip
💖 A child with deaf and mute parents
💖 A child with Down Syndrome
💖 A child with a red birthmark on his face
💖 How others see them
💖 How they feel
💖 Their stories of acceptance
Parent guide to discuss about disabilities
to foster empathy
- I really appreciate this!
Thank you Aparna @globalmindfuljourney for helping me to verify
that the medical term for the red birthmark is a Port-wine stain!
This is by no means a set of perfect books addressing the topics.
Chats about these books
with my book buddy Joanne @theplayjournals
made me realise...
Unlike the years of ongoing discussions
and extensive sharing in Western countries,
these conversations about disabilities
may just be beginning in the Chinese-speaking parts of the world,
and the Chinese kid lit may not be the best... yet!
Nevertheless these Mandarin books
are truly a breath of fresh air,
and much needed
for us parents to discuss with our kids on the important topics of
as part of peace education.
Recommended for ages: 4-12
