MyaGrace loves music and dancing. Her school is having a big dance and she wants to go with her friend Emily. She has so much to do to get ready. What should she wear? How should she fix her hair? What color should she paint her fingernails? Will she get everything done in time? Finding My Way Books honor children with special needs or disabilities by sharing their stories.


MyaGrace Wants To Make Music is an exciting new title from a series featuring true stories of inclusion and the development of skills needed for self-determination.

It is especially effective that the story is written from the viewpoint and in the voice of the child, MyaGrace.
