Awesomely Emma - a Charley and Emma Story
Amy Webb, Beaming Books 2020
Emma loves being herself, and she loves her different body. Born without hands, Emma gets about on an electric wheel chair, writes and draws with her feet. "No bodies are wrong. All bodies are right. We're al different colors, sizes and heights. My body works differently - I love being me! Because ME is an awesome thing to be". But her friend Charley keeps trying to help when she can do it fine on her own. Then Emma thinks about a way he can help - getting the museum to have equal access at the front door!
