Heartwarming tale of a little girl who forms a close bond with a child with cerebral palsy.



2016 Winner of the Dolly Gray Children's Literature Award to recognize authors, illustrators, and publishers of high quality fictional and biographical children, intermediate, and young adult books that appropriately portray individuals with developmental disabilities.



My Friend Suhana is a delightful read for a children's book. Very well illustrated with respect, friendship, and advocacy all in mind at the same time.

--Dawn Cruzan, President, Camp Craig Allen for all abilities


This is the story of a seven-year-old's first attempt at unconditional love. Tough but tender, inspirational yet utterly real, this is a small gem of a tale. Highly recommended for anyone in the position of mentoring a beloved child through the hard places of life.

--Paula Hutson, author of A Season of Mystery and A Land Without Sin
