   Celebrate Differences!
The story of When Charley Met Emma is about being different and celebrating. It is a realistic story of a boy going to the playground and seeing a girl in a wheelchair. He is unsure of what to think, but he talks to Emma and learns a wonderful truth. I cannot recommend this book enough for every child. There is a guide for caregivers. The illustrations are beautiful.
   Note to Editor/Publisher
I think there is a wonderful book! Striking book to talk about a hard subject. I think that's great! According to myinterpretation, the editorpublisher shouldn't be confused, that Charlie is spelled with the letters H, and is only on page 25, not the remainder.
   Pure Gold
The book is wonderful, the story is good, and the illustrations are great. I was standing in line next to a woman in a wheelchair. They said "hi" to her when she talked to them about her wheelchair. I know that this is a simple thing, but a lot of people still don't speak to people with disabilities like they are normal people. I read them and reinforced the idea that we treat everyone the same. It shows how talking about people who are different affects how our children treat them. It is an easy way to start the conversation.
   A must for every home!
It's fun and talks about disability and kindness in a way that is accessible. The final page of the book has a 4-step plan to walk your child through the experience of seeing or meeting another child who may look different.
   It's not about Charley---
I ordered this book after reading a friend's recommendation. My daughter and I read it together. It seems like it was written by someone who has never experienced this kind of life. The illustrations are beautiful, but the story is not. The language of wondering if her hands were taken or cut off added to the lack of compassion that children deal with on a daily basis. This book was a book I was excited to receive and hoped to use in an educational setting. I'm sad to think that this is the best we can do in kids lit, as a mother of a child in a wheelchair who has been on this journey for nearly a decade.
   Meeting people who are different - wow
An open mind can bring in new friends. A girl with no hands is at the playground. He said something impolite and the girl heard him and was sad. His mother tells him that being different is fine, and he apologizes. She is happy to answer his questions and he finds they are both similar.
   Precious Book!!
The illustrations are beautiful and the message is clear. The talking points at the end were very nice. We are a family with an extra special person, and love having a book that helps teach how to get along with them.
   Buy it!
The quote was "Buy the book!" The book was fun for the two kids and their parents. This is necessary if you own a home library and schools. The book is good for kids with disabilities, but it's also good for you and their own differences. That being different is okay makes it easy for kids and people to understand. When it's time to approach your kids, we have to remember to look at them with questions about themselves and other people being different. It Couldn't recommend it Enough! I love the illustrations.
   Incredible must read!
This is book is wonderful, and it will be the first book you ever read. When my sibling was sick, I remember seeing other kids stare at him while he was different. This is an example of teaching kids to get to know someone they aren't really related to instead of believing they're weird. It is possible that you already know how much you have in common. This book is one of the most beautiful books I have read. They gave me an extra copy to donate.
