Window of Hope is a moving, inspirational story about compassion and accepting differences. A disabled girl finds comfort and love in a bird with one leg. Max is not interested in the bird because it's broken. But when the bird performs different tricks to get Max's attention, she soon realises that the bird is special. This book will show children that bad times and having a handicap does not mean the end of possibilities. This story will help teach children about resilience and the wonderful relationship with animals, even with disabilities. Children with a disability can use this book as a tool to ask questions needed to process their own trauma. This story will inspire children and show how animals with a disability can bravely give life a second chance.
