My Mischievous Wheelchair by Molly David is a picture book for young children. A young girl named Grace hopes to become a student of the month, but there's just one thing getting in her way. You see, Grace uses a wheelchair due to having a disability that prevents her from walking. Unfortunately for Grace, her wheelchair has a mind of its own and gets her into all kinds of trouble. Grace realizes that her chair just wants to be noticed, so she works with some of her friends to make happen. Will Grace's chair be satisfied with the efforts she and her friends put in? And will Grace finally become a student of the month?

My Mischievous Wheelchair was a pleasure to read. As soon as I read the title, it had me intrigued as to what made the wheelchair mischievous. I wasn't expecting such a heartwarming message behind the story either, and it made me tear up a little. It's so true that people need to be more aware of disabilities and learn that it is normal and shouldn't be looked down upon. Disabilities don't define a person; it just makes them that much more awesome and unique. I loved how Molly David portrayed this message through a story that will also entertain young readers; they probably won't even realize they have learned such an important lesson, they'll just soak it up. Not only does this book have a great storyline, but it also has colorful and professional illustrations by Solomiia. I highly recommend this book to any parent wishing to both entertain and teach children about disabilities and inclusion.
