Dinosaur Mac’s Discovery by Erin Feasey, illus. Gabriella Klepatski
His name is Mac – Dinosaur Mac. he does everything all children do including reading I am pleased to say, but he is different. Mac has DMD or Duchenne muscular dystropphy.
Mac’s muscles get tired easily and his balance is tested but it doesn’t stop him. He loves dinosaurs and wears a dinosaur tail everywhere he goes. This is his story as he slowly graduates to a wheelchair but nothing stops his enthusiasm nor does it stop the positive caring attitude of his family and friends.
Lots of positives about this picture book which are amplified by Gabriella Klepatski’s simple and poignant illustrations. There is a smile on every face and enjoyment oozes through the pages even when Mac is having his blood tests.
A great read-a-loud for junior and senior primary students.
This is a special picture book so if you want a copy visit Dinosaur Mac’s Discovery on Facebook or contact the publisher. You will not regret it
