This triumphant story offers a valuable look at both adjusting to a wheelchair and facing physical limitations with boundless energy and determination.
Taylor and Tyler are twin brothers and best friends. But the twins are different in one significant way: Taylor has cerebral palsy, while Tyler does not. Taylor works hard to strengthen his weak legs in therapy and at home. But when he learns to use a wheelchair, he finds that he is able to get around school more quickly than he could with his walker. He is even able to play basketball with Tyler!
Accompanied by Simmonds' bright multimedia paintings, Heelan's reveals the experiences of a child who lives with physical limitations and shows how wheelchairs allow people to be more independent.
