About this Book
Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah is an inspiring true story—which was turned into a film, Emmanuel's Gift, narrated by Oprah Winfrey. Born in Ghana, with one deformed leg, he was dismissed by most people—except his mother, who taught him to go for his dreams. As a boy, Emmanuel hopped to school more than two miles each way, left home at age 13 to provide for his family, and eventually, became a cyclist. He rode an astonishing 400 miles across Ghana in 2001, spreading his powerful message: disability is not inability

Reviews from Around the World
This is such a beautiful, true story about overcoming obstacles and perseverance. I was moved to tears by it and my son loves it. I give this book my highest recommendation and an unequivocal 5 stars. Well written, compelling, and inspiring.—Amazon Customer, Amazon

It's important to teach our children that being different is an opportunity. This beautiful picture book does just that. Social justice efforts are incredibly worthwhile and should be an integral part of each person's life. Read this book to show younger generations that anything is possible.—Rachel Watkins
