Synopsis

Roll On Rick Hansen Wheels Around the World by Ainslie Manson

As Rick Hansen wheels around the globe on his incredible Man in Motion World Tour, the children he meets are encouraged to dream their own dreams and work to make them come true. Readers also discover little-known facts about the great journey. They learn that Rick wheeled the equivalent of three marathons a day and went through 94 pairs of gloves. And they learn about the gift of a song that Rick and his team sang or hummed mile after mile. The lively text and enchanting illustrations combine to bring to life Rick's amazing feat and the impact it has had on children everywhere. Roll On is an inspirational story for any child who has had to overcome a disability, has a friend or sibling who lives with a disability, or who has big dreams for life.
