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.… (mer)

I think this informational text would be good for lower-mid elementary students. This book walks you through the life of Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah and the challenges that he faces. He faces his disability of only having one leg, making friends, and caring for his sick mother Confort. This book brings the best message of “In this world, we are not perfect. We can only do our best.” ( )

Born with a severely deformed leg, Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah was abandoned by his father as an infant, and raised by his mother, Comfort. Encouraged to do things for himself, he found a way to go to school and to participate in sports - both very unusual for disabled children in his native country of Ghana. Eventually, he set out on a four-hundred-mile bicycle journey around Ghana, bringing attention and awareness, both in his country and around the world, to the lives of disabled people...

Emmanuel's Dream: The True Story of Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah is certainly an inspiring book, and I read it with interest, moved by its true story of a young person who never let the challenges he faced defeat him. It reminded me of Meshack Asare's Sosu's Call, an award-winning Ghanaian picture-book about a fictional boy who, like Emmanuel, had physical disabilities, but who triumphed, showing the people of his village what he could do. Laurie Ann Thompson's narrative here is engaging, and there is an author's note at the rear, giving more information about Emmanuel. The accompanying artwork from Sean Qualls, done in mixed media, is colorful and expressive. Recommended to picture-book readers looking for inspiring true stories of young people overcoming great difficulties. ( )

Great book to read to students about overcoming obstacles! ( )

Emmanuel was born with one leg but never let that dictate how his life would go and he grows up to bike his way across 400 miles. This is a beautiful story about Emmanuel and how his mother forced him to be independent even as a baby and how that shaped him into the determined young men he ended up being. Emmanuel's story is inspiring and everything he accomplished he did on his own despite the doubts of everyone from his own father all the way to strangers in the city. I would recommend this book from pre-k to 2nd grade. ( )
