His mother zooms him in her wheelchair, but that's only shown in the illustrations, not discussed. There is a mention that "we love ramps", but the fact is that able-bodied children love running up and down ramps too, it doesn't say explicitly "Because Mama can't get up the stairs".
This sort of presentation is, I think, very important in normalizing disability. Books that make a big deal about the subject can serve to make it seem scarier and stranger than it actually is.
This book, by contrast, is a storybook, nothing more. I really recommend this to any child, especially any child who knows anybody who uses a wheelchair.
It handles the issue of disability without hitting you over the head with the subject.
The book connects to what toddlers love best; mommies and pretend play.
The love of a mother and her child "zooms" right off the page and into the hearts of it's readers. The illustrations convey such warmth and affection of the family.
My son loves reading it over and over while pretending to do all the things the mama and little boy are doing. This book is a TREASURE!
