Аннотация

This true story of a boy who must overcome prejudice and weakness to treat a group of special needs children with the respectand lovethey deserve ';will give your innards a bear hug. . . . You will read this book with a lump in your throat.' (Lincoln Journal) From Ron Jones, a teacher who started the classroom program that inspired the movie The Wave, comes a memoir about a life-changing summer. Ron expected that his time as a counselor at Camp Wiggin would be filled with sunny days spent hiking, swimming, and boating. But when he arrives on day one, his illusions are quickly shattered. He knew that the kids would be ';handicapped,' but he didn't anticipate having to care for children who can barely walk or see or retain the use of their limbs. At first, the severity of the campers' disabilities seems too much to bear. But everything changes once Ron gets to know his groupkids who call themselves ';the Acorn People' because of the acorn necklaces they wear around their necks. The campers teach him that, inside, they are the same as any average kid, and with encouragement, determination, and friendship, nothing is impossible. ';A fantastic and beautiful story.'Seattle Times ';Uncomfortably moving, yet told in surprisingly unsentimental terms. . . . Succinct and tender, it will haunt the reader long after the brief passages have been read.'Houston ChronicleFrom the Paperback edition.
