Crafting words and images that will capture the attention of a child can be challenging. It can be even more of a challenge to generate a purpose that will stand out, resonate with readers, and most of all, make a difference.

Children's author Maryann Cocca Leffler has  written and illustrated over 50 books for children. Last March, she released Janine, a story that encourages both children and adults to embrace the differences amongst ourselves. The main character is based on her own daughter, Janine Leffler and her life growing up as a child with disability.
