FOLD Kids Book Fest

November 4 - November 7

In early November, join us for a webinar with the authors Kelly Fritsch, Anne McGuire, and illustrator Eduardo Trejos to discuss We Move Together at the FOLD Canada Kids Book Fest.

Registration opens October 14, be sure to register here!

A bold and colorful exploration of all the ways that people navigate through the spaces around them and a celebration of the relationships we build along the way. We Move Together follows a mixed-ability group of kids as they creatively negotiate everyday barriers and find joy and connection in disability culture and community. A perfect tool for families, schools, and libraries to facilitate conversations about disability, accessibility, social justice and community building. Includes a kid-friendly glossary (for ages 6–9).

We Move Together is a love letter to the next generation of disabled kids, and a provocation for their nondisabled peers to rethink an ableist society’s assumptions about how our bodies should move, what they should look like, and how our brains should work … This gorgeously illustrated book offers a powerful message rooted in the Disability Justice movement—we care for and love each other, and we move together, with nobody left behind.” —Lydia X. Z. Brown, disability justice advocate and founder/director of Fund for Community Reparations for Autistic People of Color’s Interdependence, Survival, & Empowerment
