Summary
  • A picture book answering the questions young children ask Shane Burcaw about his wheelchair and life with Spinal Muscular Atrophy with equal parts optimism, humor, and empathy
  • "Why do you look so different? That's a great question! My name is Shane, and I was born with a disease that makes my body grow smaller and weaker as I get older instead of bigger and stronger. Living with this disease means that I've used a wheelchair for most of my life and often rely on my family and friends to help me do all my favorite things - like eating pizza, participating in team sports, and playing video games. Since many people are curious about me, I decided to answer some of the questions I'm asked head-on in this book. Go ahead and take a look! Although I need a little more help than you might, you'll see that I'm not so different" --
