Romeo Book Series by April Whitt
Teacher, author and guest blogger, April M Whitt, takes us on her journey with ‘Romeo Riley’ and his wheelchair in her children’s literature series. There are no limits to the trouble this private eye encounters!
Whitt explains, “I’d been writing silly stories about some of my students (many of whom have CP.) The kids loved hearing the stories I made up about them. We’d also been reading a popular funny book in our class. The students enjoyed the humor—but I wondered how much they could identify with characters whose lives were so much different from theirs.”
She continues, “I began looking for funny books that had characters who had disabilities–but I didn’t find many. And I wanted the world to see that kids with disabilities are still kids who have fun and live fulfilling lives. I know my kids understand more than they can tell me. And when they laugh at the punchlines, that’s when the sun breaks through!”
