Born in Ghana, West Africa, with one deformed leg, he was dismissed by most people--but not by his mother, who taught him to reach for his dreams. As a boy, Emmanuel hopped to school more than two miles each way, learned to play soccer, left home at age thirteen to provide for his family, and, eventually, became a cyclist.

Read this via Overdrive, but want to see the print--the illustrations deserve to be seen as intended. Great inspirational story. ( )

Emmanuel's Dream is based on a real story about a disabled boy who rode 400 miles on a bike in just over a week. Based in Ghana, it is a story about a boy who lives his entire life refusing to be defined by his disability. Reading this story to any middle grade level or subject would be an insight to the culture in Africa, as well as create understanding among students for their disabled peers, boosting empathy. ( )

I think this informational text would be good for lower-mid elementary students. This book walks you through the life of Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah and the challenges that he faces. He faces his disability of only having one leg, making friends, and caring for his sick mother Confort. This book brings the best message of “In this world, we are not perfect. We can only do our best.” ( )

Born with a severely deformed leg, Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah was abandoned by his father as an infant, and raised by his mother, Comfort. Encouraged to do things for himself, he found a way to go to school and to participate in sports - both very unusual for disabled children in his native country of Ghana. Eventually, he set out on a four-hundred-mile bicycle journey around Ghana, bringing attention and awareness, both in his country and around the world, to the lives of disabled people...

Emmanuel's Dream: The True Story of Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah is certainly an inspiring book, and I read it with interest, moved by its true story of a young person who never let the challenges he faced defeat him. It reminded me of Meshack Asare's Sosu's Call, an award-winning Ghanaian picture-book about a fictional boy who, like Emmanuel, had physical disabilities, but who triumphed, showing the people of his village what he could do. Laurie Ann Thompson's narrative here is engaging, and there is an author's note at the rear, giving more information about Emmanuel. The accompanying artwork from Sean Qualls, done in mixed media, is colorful and expressive. Recommended to picture-book readers looking for inspiring true stories of young people overcoming great difficulties. ( )
