Tag! You’re It
Normally children love and can connect with anyone but it’s their parents or guardians that are usually the culprits of discrimination. This book will help children to right the wrong and see that any form of discrimination, especially against someone that’s disabled, is not kind nor acceptable. Let’s teach our children not to discriminate against anyone regardless of their hair, culture, skin, religion, clothes, where someone lives, or their disability but to embrace others with compassion, sharing, and humanity. I’m sure that your child will love this book as much as I did. Highly recommended.

Children, like adults, tend to judge people based on their looks and their visible abilities (or what some call disabilities). People of all ages need to learn that we all have different abilities, and we all want to feel included. The plot follows Gabby and Nicky as they try to become involved in a game of tag with other children. Gabby must try extra hard to prove she’s good enough to be a part of the fun activities. The characters are well developed, and the illustrations are bright, colorful, and very descriptive of both activities and facial expressions. The dialogue is well-constructed and used effectively. The language is simple to help young readers follow along. This is a beautiful story that will not only teach young readers about conditions like cerebral palsy but, more importantly, it teaches them not to judge. Acceptance in all things in life is an important lesson to learn. Beautifully told.

Tag! You’re It tells a story that any sensitive reader will find funny, moving, and inspiring at the same time. Jannesy DeLeon has two children with special needs, and in this book, she recounts what they have experienced firsthand. I think this is precisely why the story of Gabby and Nicky makes such a deep impression on the reader. In addition to giving food for thought to both young readers and parents who will read Tag! You’re It with them, I liked that DeLeon added a list of outdoor games that can be modified to include the others.
