By Finding My Way Books

Finding My Way Books share true stories of inclusion and we are very happy to share two wonderful stories from Canada.  Claire shares her very amazing story of learning to box at the Toronto News Girls Boxing Club. Her boxing coach describes herself as differently sight abled. Matteo and his brother have a wonderful adventure visiting the Royal Ontario Bio-Diversity area. Their docent is another amazing woman who happens to be nonverbal. These six concept books were created in a very unique way. Our photographer met with a 1st grade class.  The students chose how they wanted to demonstrate the different concepts. The photographs are very fun.
