Readers and customers have asked for informative and entertaining fiction for teens and young adults about their lives. Lucky Dogs, Lost Hats, and Dating Don'ts, a collection of over a dozen hi-lo (high interest-low reading level) short stories for people with intellectual disabilities or other learning challenges.
Middle schoolers through adults will identify with the book's true-to-life stories and their characters (some with developmental disabilities, some without), who want to live as independently as they can. And just like real life, there are episodes of hilarity, poignancy, messiness, responsibility, longing, fulfillment, and adventure. From roommate troubles to wanting a pet, and from seeking a girlfriend to going camping with friends, these appealing short stories engage readers and impart subtle life lessons. A set of questions at the end of each story encourages discussion and further self-reflection. Stories included are:
A Day of Kindness
A Very Lucky Dog
Adventures in Camping
Bad Hair Day
How to Find a Girlfriend
The Kissing Scene
216 pages. 2012
Together, we're always better. More fun, too.
