My rating: 5 of 5 stars






The Amputeddy books are designed to teach children about amputation, and introduce them to the frustrations faced by amputees. I think they’re really cute books, which could be very useful in getting a discussion going on the subject, and possibly also help amputee children feel they aren't so alone.

What a great teaching tool. I think some adults need to read books like this, too.

I'm going to take a look. It would be a great donation to make to The Wounded Warriors Regiment.
