I Am Not a Label: 34 Disabled Artists, Thinkers, Athletes and Activists from Past and Present

This engaging resource focuses on thirty-four disabled athletes, activists, thinkers, and artists throughout history and from around the world. The author outlines the achievements of each person and demonstrates that having a disability or chronic illness need not define people; it’s only one aspect of their lives that makes them unique. Useful as a class read-aloud, for inquiry projects, an addition to a school or classroom library, to prompt discussions about stereotyping and disabilities, and to launch writing and reflection activities. Compelling, colourful illustrations accompany the brief profiles.
