Stories about Amazing People with Learning Differences

What do a trapeze artist, an Arctic explorer, and a soccer player have in common? Meet fifteen kids and adults in this collection of first-person accounts of successful people who learn differently. Each person shares an inspiring story of facing the challenge of school while pursuing personal goals. Through their voices they encourage others to work hard and find hobbies that build self-esteem. An invaluable resource list for adults and students is included, as well as a place for kids to write their own success stories. The foreword is written by award-winning illustrator, Jerry Pinkney.
