Any parent with a child who has learning disabilities knows it can sometimes be hard for them to fit in when they feel like they stick out.
It was a struggle just like this that prompted mother-of-three, Eleanor, to create this book. The ‘short story’, Cotton Can, was written and developed by Eleanor, and her three daughters, aged 5, 6 and 8, about finding ‘beautiful’ in ‘different’, and believing in your own abilities.
Eleanor states that Cotton Can, which was written in celebration of Learning Disabilities Week 2015, was a commentary “about how you see things. Just because we learn differently, doesn't mean we can't.”
Take a look at the sweet story here.
