King for a Day by Rukhsana Khan


If there was ever a book that combined everything I love about reading this is it! Taking place in Lahore, young Malik and his sibs participate in the annual kite festival. ¬†What I love about this book is that young Malik is in a wheelchair! I love that he is differently abled and while his representation is noted it’s not THE thing that the book hangs on. He’s just a boy who’s wicked good at flying a kite. 90 thousand star rating.

I love this book so much I thought I’d share it with you in a reading. Wanna see it? Check out the illustrations, they are GORGEOUS!

Isn’t that the best story ever?

Thank you Lee & Low for this book!
