Product Description


This books shows the disability being taken absolutely for granted and, what's more, concentrate on the person in the wheelchair, not the chair itself. Especially suitable for young disabled children and their class-mates since they're allowed to assume, matter of factly, that they'll grow up to lead an active, normal family life (Books for Keeps)

I was struck by the positive angle this was written from. I liked the point that it portrayed a disabled parent taking his children out for the day by himself and everybody concerned thoroughly enjoying themselves. The direct approach helped, it definitely gripped both my son and I from the beginning of the story (H. Lidbitter Patentability News)

Book Description

A familiar theme for anyone who takes children on a journey.

A really good book which presents disability in a positive and discreet way. The children loved joining in with the repeated refrain 'Are we there yet?'

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful glimpse into fatherhood with a disability. 15 Feb 2004
By Tracy Beck - Published on
Max and Amy are really excited when they learn that their dad has planned a surprise trip to a theme park but it seems that they'll never arrive. The father in this story is an active and much adored man who has a physical disability. The book's illustrations manage to reveal so much about life with a disability. If you like this one, check out Boots for a Bridesmaid by the same author.
