An Inside Look at Awesomely Emma
From School Library Journal
"An inclusive depiction of a disabled girl who declares that bodies may be different but none are wrong. With a main character who confidently navigates her world and deals with strong emotions in a positive way, this title has a clear theme of self-empowerment." --School Library Journal
"A book that will entertain as well as spark important conversations for young people and the adults around them is a rare thing. Awesomely Emma is a vital delight." -- -- Brad Montague, creator of Kid President web series, and NYT bestselling author of Kid President's Guide to Being Awesome
"Webb blends art, activism and awareness with an authenticity that made me cheer for Emma and her friends." ---- Jamie Sumner, author of middle-grade novels Roll with It and Tune It Out, and nonfiction books Unbound and Eat, Sleep, Save the World
"Awesomely Emma fills a much needed space in the picture-book marketplace. Webb shares a story of kindness and empowerment, teaching that all bodies are awesome and children can make a difference for good in their communities." ---- Camille Andros, author of the Charlotte the Scientist series and From a Small Seed

We bought both books and gave them as gifts to our kids teachers for back to school also!!❤️❤️
Emma loves art and is excited to visit the museum with her friends on their school field trip. When they arrive, Emma is frustrated to discover there is no ramp by the front door and she has to enter from the back. Her friend Charley feels sorry for her and spends the rest of the visit trying to help her. While Charley’s motives are pure, his actions cause Emma to feel angry.
Emma explains that all bodies are different and “no one can do EVERYTHING other people can do.” She prefers to do things on her own and will ask for help when she needs it. In a perfectly gratifying ending, Emma advocates for herself by writing a letter to the museum requesting a ramp at the front entrance. Her friends support her by signing the letter and they all feel empowered by the museum’s response agreeing to create a place where all bodies are equally welcomed.
This inclusive story is perfect for starting conversations on disabilities and how to be a good friend to others. Emma’s self-confidence is contagious and I hope that children will remember her words, “No bodies are wrong. All bodies are right. We’re all different colors, sizes, and heights. My body works differently – I love being me! Because ME is an awesome thing to be.”
You can also read more about Emma in When Charley Met Emma. I love both of these books so much! Trying to find quality books that feature individuals with limb differences is nearly impossible. It shouldn’t be this way. I am so thankful for Amy Webb creating these stories and what she had learned since she has a daughter who also has limb differences.
One page also really stuck out to me because there is a picture of a little girl with lower body limb differences. Someone in my family whom I love dearly is an above the knee amputee. I can’t express how much it means to me to see someone like them in this book.
“No bodies are wrong. All bodies are right. We’re all different colors, sizes, and heights. My body works differently - I love being me! Because ME is an awesome thing to be.”
Thank you to the publisher for gifting us this copy. We will truly cherish it!
