New Hands, New Life by Alex Mihailidis and Jan Andrysek (131)

This is a book about how prosthesis and innovations can help children who experience disabilities because of accidents and diseases.

For people living with disabilities, machine technology is very important. Assistive technologies allow a person with a missing leg or arm to move again. It can also allow a child in a wheelchair to play a sport.

All bodies allow us to do physical activities and remain active. However, when our bodies don’t work properly, assistive technologies can help tremendously.

From artificial limbs and wheelchairs to exoskeletons and robots, machines are built so that people with disabilities can lead healthy, active lives.

This book is hopeful! It presents people with challenges and a choice to live a more active life both today and tomorrow, despite their disabilities.

This book is informative and colorful. The photographs show precisely how certain prosthetics and artificial limbs look, hopefully making it less formidable for kids.

There is very little worse than being young and having a disability that occurred through no fault of your own. This book offers young readers a lot of information on how our amazing bodies work.

I love hopeful books like this!  I am sure parents with children with disabilities will be enthused after reading this book.
