Description - Jessica's Box by Peter Carnavas
The story centres on the trepidation that a young girl faces when starting school and her efforts to win friends. She tries bringing different offerings to school in her large brown box. Her journey ends when she finally discovers her own magnificent self-worth. This universally appealing message has been embraced by the Cerebral Palsy Alliance, who have re-commissioned an edition with Jessica in a wheelchair. The text remains identical, but the illustrations have been redrawn to show Jessica in a wheelchair. No mention is made in the story about her disability. Highly recommended for schools, especially those embracing integration.
