Hey there, fabulous kidlit wordsmiths! When it comes to writing your stories, do you ever stop and ponder about the rad idea of including characters with mental and physical disabilities? It's time to kickstart those creative gears and bring a whole new level of diversity to our pages.
These kids are superheroes-in-the-making with unique challenges, who often have a hard time finding characters they can relate to in our books. Whether we're crafting stories specially for them or featuring their remarkable selves, let's whip up narratives that make their hearts leap and shout, "Whoa, that's amazing!"
