Published by Paw Print Publishing, 2006
One of a series of books in which disabled children are seen enjoying themselves in entirely normal ways. Nisha, who wears callipers and uses sticks, and Hattie are going on a farm visit with their mums. They share a happy day together enjoying goats, horses, pigs and donkeys, having lunch in the cafe, feeding lambs, going on a tractor ride, and playing in the adventure playground. No mention is made of Nisha's disability, and she enjoys the fun right along with Hattie. In this series we see children of different races (Nisha is Asian), and the cheerful illustrations add greatly to the fun.
