About the book: Sam’s Super Seats is a joyful picture book about a disabled girl with cerebral palsy who goes back-to-school shopping with her best friends, from #DisabledandCute creator and The Pretty One author Keah Brown. Sam loves herself, learning, making her family and friends laugh and comfortable seats. With hilarious, charming text and exuberant illustrations, Sam’s Super Seats celebrates the beauty of self-love, the power of rest, and the necessity of accessible seating in public spaces.
An exuberant picture book that centers ease and rest ... Brown's ( The Pretty One, for adults) candid prose matches the characters' affectionate demeanors and open expressions, while Miller's ( Michelle's Garden) pencil-and-watercolor illustrations add playfulness to an assured story about accommodation and self-love. -- Publishers Weekly
