This powerful and winning picture book tells the story of a young man overcoming the odds.--School Library Journal starred review Reseña del editor Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah's inspiring true story—which was turned into a film Emmanuel's Gift narrated by Oprah Winfrey—is nothing short of remarkable. 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. He rode an astonishing four hundred miles across Ghana in 2001 spreading his powerful message: disability is not inability. Today Emmanuel continues to work on behalf of the disabled.
