BAF Fundraiser - Don't forget Our Friend Mikayla

School is Back So Please Remember They May Need Our Friend Mikayla

Our Friend Mikayla Book

Written and illustrated by third-grade students, Our Friend Mikayla, is an honest portrayal of the children’s first reactions to Mikayla, their barriers to acceptance and finally the true friendship they formed with her. At her parents’ request, Mikayla was included in a regular classroom. Not only did Mikayla’s classmates accept her, but they also began to see her as “just like them.” Their relationship with Mikayla and their journey to acceptance inspired the book. Our Friend Mikayla became the class project, mainly because Mikayla’s friends felt they had an important message to share with other children. Their goal was to teach other kids that, “From Mikayla, we’ve learned that people with disabilities aren’t really different. It doesn’t matter if your friend is in a wheelchair. Their disabilities don’t mean you cannot be friends. Having a friend with a disability is cool.”

Yes, school is opening and it is time to remember that there are school's out there that still do not have a copy of Mikayla in their library. Perhaps even your local library, or hospital could use a copy. So why not stop by the BAF Store and order your copies today? Think of all the sweet young lives you will be enriching...
