My two-and-a-half-year-old was born prematurely and currently has a few different disabilities and setbacks that we're working with. I'm always on the lookout for children's books that prominently and positively feature children with disabilities. Unfortunately, it seems like I can ONLY find them at hospitals — and we can't take those home with us. So I'm looking for books that show kids with disabilities doing all kinds of activities and participating in life fully.

Does anyone have any recommendations for books that feature kids with disabilities as the protagonists? — H.
