Teaching Titan Graduate Shannon Green ’18 has written a children’s book! She shared the following information about it:
Scottie on the Space Station is an educational story for children in the early grades which exemplifies how to speak to people with disabilities, but in a fun, imaginative way. This story is a personal one for my sister and me because we grew up with Scottie and had to repeatedly teach others that it is ok to just talk, befriend, and play with him. My sister (and co-author), Kaela, and I wrote this picture book in the hopes that it can be a reference for teachers and parents to review inclusion and diversity (something I think is desperately needed in these times). We added the space station element because our father and, previously, my sister worked at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and are space enthusiasts; an enthusiasm we wish to spread to the younger generation.
