Flightless Goose, a new full-color, hardcover children’s book from Writers’ Lair Books, deals with disability and aims to promote tolerance and build self-esteem.

The story, written by Eric D. Goodman and illustrated by Nataliya A. Goodman, is about a goose who has an accident and is no longer able to fly. The word disability is not mentioned in the text, but the story deals with disabling conditions and teaches about overcoming challenges, focusing on positive strengths, and treating others with respect and dignity. In the end, the flightless goose develops a talent no other goose has, which helps him save the day.

The book is available at www.RunGoose.com, in book stores, and at Amazon.com.
