Kids book aims to reframe disability through the lens of functional diversity

“My Friend is a Superhero”

Written by Barbara Pike and Philip Patston, and illustrated by Sam Orchard, the book’s purpose is to influence children (and their parents) away from negative stereotypes, as well as portraying unique aspects of function and experience to encourage children’s natural curiosity.

You can download a sample here. The book is A5, 32-pages, full colour. We believe it would suit children from 3-7 years, and possibly older as a discussion starter about diversity.

Proceeds help support Diversityworks Trust.
