I Am, You Are
  • I Am, You Are

  • I Am, You Are is a powerful, practical book to help children and adults have meaningful discussions about disability and ableism.

    This book was written by disability activist Ashley Harris Whaley to support children, parents, teachers and carers, by explaining what disability is and why it should be celebrated.

    Fully-illustrated throughout by talented illustrator and advocacy campaigner Ananya Rao-Middleton, I Am, You Are is aimed at children aged four and above.

    Containing explanations on key words and concepts written in child-friendly, accessible language, with relatable examples, this book supports children's understanding in building an anti-ableist stance from an early age.

    It is perfect to read at home, and in classrooms, to support your child's life-long learning journey.
