A Cute Book



I first ran across the book Zoom by Robert Munsch at the Internation Reading Association conference my school sent me to some years back.  He was signing books so I had him sign it to my class.  I stopped teaching shortly after I had Conner and kind of forgot about it.  After I had Madi and she got her wheelchair, I remembered that I had it.  I wish I could have had it signed to Madi, instead of my students, but that's ok, it's still cool. 

The book is about a little girl who picks out a wheelchair and finds this amazingly fast one that they let her try for free for one day.  She takes it on the road and gets a speeding ticket.  Her parents say she has to take it back.... until she uses it to help her brother.  At the end of the day, though, the little girl decides the chair is just too slow and that it needs to go back.  It's a very cute book!

I will have to check it out... I am trying EVERYTHING to encourage Nat to use his chair willingly right now. He HATES having to use it, but his foot will not heal if he keeps walking on it! Such a struggle here :(
