Mi Cerebro No Va a Salir Flotando
Eight-year-old Annie gathers the courage to ask her mother, “Why is one of my hands smaller than the other? Why do I fall so much?” What follows is a story of fears, will, self-discovery, and triumph. An autobiographical account of growing up with hydrocephalus, told with humor, honesty, and compassion, proving even the simplest act can change one's life forever. A beautifully illustrated bilingual book dealing with acceptance and independence, perfect for schools or libraries.

I checked this book out at our local library because we were talking about disabilities in my sons class at school. i figured if we read some books about various disabilities perhaps he would understand better. this book is just what i was looking for, the story of a little girl with hydrocephalus and how she learns that even though she must do some things differently, like tying her shoes one handed, but really she is not that different than any other child. The book teaches in a non scary way what hydrocephalous is and more than anything teaches children kindness and understanding of different people. Highly recommend. I actually purchased a copy for my sons class, i think all classrooms should carry this book.
