Description
When his teacher gives an assignment to write about a friend, 7-year old Moses considers classmates, neighbours, parents, and teachers before finally deciding on Zaki, his teenage neighbour's iguana, because she is different yet determined, like him. Using a wheelchair due to disabilities including spina bifida, Moses nevertheless participates in all of the classroom activities. Zaki has missing toes, yet has learned to compensate by using her strong front legs to keep up with Hashi, her companion iguana. With this beautifully photographed and engaging story, children discover that living with disability and facing its challenges can be seen as interesting, even positive. With an Afterword about disabilities, Moses, and iguanas, the story provides material for discussion at school and home,
