M. Browne and The Rose Show
The Browne children ask their father if their unique brown roses can be entered in the local rose show. Father agrees, but not the roses at the show or the chairperson. The Mayor, I.M. Bizzee, is handicapped and explains that being different can also mean being in a wheelchair.
The sequel, Mr. Browne's Roses" continues when the roses enter a local flower show and find their unigue brown colors are not welcomed by everyone including the other roses. They are rescued by the Mayor, who is handicapped and also "different". Their adventures teach a valuable lesson in tolerance.
The sequel, Mr. Browne and the Rose Show, is but one of many future books dealing with varied problems children face. If I can scratch the surface of a least a few, I'll feel profoundly fortunate to have contributed to the well being of the future generation.
