Beautiful photos of kids with disabilities celebrate all types of movement and mobility aids (like wheelchairs, service dogs, and crutches), while poetic text builds both vocabulary and empathy. ON-THE-GO helps families and educators discuss ability and mobility at home and in the classroom. Created with 0-5-year-olds in mind. Part of the We Are Little Feminists series - the identity-affirming board book series developed to raise intersectional feminists. Created to help families and educators discuss diversity through everyday topics, We Are Little Feminists helps children stand against racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and ableism.
