Galia's Dad Is in a Wheelchair (Paperback)James English (author)
- We can order this
During his five years in public office, Secretary Gerald Oriol Jr. recognized his country's critical shortage of children's literature, particularly related to disability, and encouraged his friend and adviser James English to create a children's book for Haiti, which has an estimated one million persons with disabilities, a number that increased significantly following the 2010 earthquake.
Galia's Dad Is in a Wheelchair aims to counter negative stereotypes and stigmas surrounding disability and is believed to be the only children's book on the subject in Haiti available in Creole, French, and English. The book's positive messages, which promote disability awareness and close parent-child relations, are universal and extend to general readers beyond the small Caribbean island nation.
Teddy Keser Mombrun, a political cartoonist for Haiti's largest newspaper, Le Nouvelliste, used Haiti's unique color palette and landscapes to create illustrations for the book.
