About Someone Special Books
Someone Special Uniquely Personalized Books creates personalized picture books for children with special needs. Through kid friendly language we create books for children with special needs/conditions/syndromes such as Autism, Epilepsy, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, ADHD, food allergies, hearing and vision impairments, speech impairments, and physical disabilities.
Someone Special Books is known for personalizing children’s books. However, Maya Makes a Friend is the non-personalized version of “Someone Makes a Friend”. Maya is a typical young girl who meets a boy with a disability. In this whimsical tale, the two unlikely pair become great friends. It is truly a delightful story of courage and kindness.
Maya Makes a Friend is an easy read that flows with rhyming words. The message is dear to my heart. My youngest daughter has a vision impairment and wears a patch with her glasses. She gets called pirate all of the time. I find the patch hidden all over the house. It disappears quite often.
Someone Special Books teach good character qualities that have fallen by the wayside these days. In this beautifully illustrated book there are talking points on the back page that allow you to lead a discussion with your children. It teaches them how to show children with disabilities kindness, respect, and acceptance. Overall, this is a delightful story that you and your children will adore!
Children can be born disabled or become disabled from an accident or illness. You can’t “catch” a disability from someone else, and you shouldn’t be scared of someone with a disability. ~ Maya Makes a Friend
