Emmanuel's Dream: The True Story of Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah

This book is about Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah
"Emmanuel's Dream: The True Story of Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah" is a profound testament to the resilience of the human spirit and a shining example of how determination can overcome adversity. Born in Ghana with a deformed leg, Emmanuel was underestimated by many. Yet, fueled by his mother's steadfast belief in his potential, he defied expectations. From hopping two miles to school each day to becoming an advocate for the disabled, Emmanuel's journey is breathtaking. In 2001, he cycled 400 miles across Ghana to challenge stereotypes and promote his message: "disability is not inability." This inspiring narrative, beautifully complemented by Thompson's lyrical prose and Qualls’s bold illustrations, makes it an essential read for elementary school students. It not only celebrates personal triumph but also underscores critical social justice themes of education and health equity. Published on January 6, 2015, this book continues to empower young readers, encouraging them to see beyond limitations and advocate for inclusivity.
