Jonathan the Porcupine-A book inspired by Jonathan's story "The Dan the Fish Series of children’s books is a collaborative effort of many people who dealt with learning and physical issues in school. The books are divided into three parts. The first is a story about an animal that has a problem similar to those that children with disabilities face every day. The second part is a reflection from a child’s perspective. The third part is a brief introduction of the adult who helped inspire the story. The purpose of the books is to inspire all children to be who they are. Presented in a creative manner, the Dan the Fish Series hopes to show kids that there are others like them, who felt like they do, and that they too can overcome their challenges and difficulties. These books can also be used as discussion starters in the classroom, for those in teaching programs and anyone working with people with disabilities. Our hope is that this series will bring understanding, encourage compassion, and help to end bullying of all children."
