The IBBY Collection of outstanding books for and about young people with disabilities has arrived in Glenveagh School, Belfast where it will remain until the 13th March before a one-day stopover in Queens University on 14th March.
Sarah Crossan's verse novel One is top pick this week, with two students from Kylemore College in Ballyfermot and IBBY Ireland's secretary Joseph Peelo telling us why.
Joseph says: 'Here is a book that really opens up the minds of readers to the possibilities of other types of lives and how we are all human when we tell our stories.'
And the students who picked the book from his library have more to say: 'I really liked the way it was written. The poems make it so much easier to read and I never would have read a book that size before.'
This comment from another student sums it all up neatly: 'I didn’t know they wrote books about things like that.'
