August's Book of the Month is Thimble Monkey Superstar by Jon Blake: an accessible, light-hearted and fast-paced adventure, with a main character with cerebral palsy - which is incidental to the plot.
Books can increase awareness, encourage dialogue, reduce stigma and develop real understanding of mental health issues.
What's the Story is a unique web resource giving young disabled people a voice on disability, inclusion and children's books, and providing useful guidance for teachers, authors, illustrators and publishers
