Blog Tour and Giveaway: Jo's Special Gifts


I adore picture books that are heartwarming and I especially appreciate it when they feature neuro-divergent characters. That is why I am happy to share a new picture book with you all today, Jo's Special Gifts by Mariam Shapera. 

This picture book celebrates the unique gifts that each child brings into this world and encourages inclusivity. It would be a great addition to a classroom library.

  1. This sounds very special! I was just talking to a coworker the other day about how books for kids are so different from what we had when we were younger, or at least it feels that way! They are much more inclusive and focus on feelings so much, it's really wonderful!


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
