Children's Literature--For All Handicapped Children.
Ferguson, Anne M.
Fourteen children's books which may help classroom teachers understand children with handicaps are described. The books deal realistically with a variety of handicaps (mental retardation, hearing impairments, blindness, physical disabilities, and multiple disabilities) and can be an effective tool in helping nonhandicapped children empathize and communicate with their handicapped peers. Following brief reviews of each of the books, specific benefits are suggested, including gaining insight and empathy, interaction skills, and becoming more sensitive toward the needs of the handicapped.
