Written by Dee Dee L. Miller and illustrated by Tom Dineen, The Special Kids in School Series are beautifully illustrated and fun-to-read storybooks that simplify and normalize complicated childhood conditions, like arthritis. When read aloud, other children can identify why a peer may be treated differently and begin to empathize with them. In addition, children whose conditions set them apart as being different begin to feel accepted and safe. Each book includes a Kids' Quiz to reinforce new information and Ten Tips for Teachers to provide additional facts and ideas for teacher use. Eric`s story helps other children realize that, despite his arthritis, he loves being a Cub Scout, riding his bike, and being like all the other children.
