"Rhyming couplets describe a wide range of common emotions and activities experienced by a little girl who uses a wheelchair."--Verso. Susan laughs, she sings, she rides, she swings. She gets angry, she gets sad, she is good, she is bad. In fact, despite the physical challenges, Susan is no different from any other child. Here the authors show a happy little girl whose physical challenges are never seen as handicaps.
