The Push: A Story of Friendship

(4) K-3 Illustrated by Justin Skeesuck & Matt Waresak. In this autobiographical, faith-based story, Marcus helps eliminate physical barriers for his best friend John, who uses a wheelchair; John, in turn, strengthens his friend's emotional resolve. Wholesome watercolor and ink drawings further the adult sentiments in a story that's enhanced by the knowledge that, as adults, author Gray pushed illustrator Skeesuck's wheelchair along Spain's famed Camino de Santiago.
