Boy in Motion


Product Description
Product Details


Gr 1-3-This fictionalized picture-book biography sketches Hansen's childhood years in Canada, his love of fishing and athletics, the car accident that paralyzed him from his waist down, and his many accomplishments using a wheelchair to get around. The text stops somewhat abruptly while he is still at university, leaving it to an afterword to tell more of his ongoing story. The book is well illustrated and offers a compelling and inspirational account of Hansen's fight to be as active as possible, mentioning his Man in Motion World Tour and his struggle to improve the quality of life for those with spinal-cord injuries. The text has few specifics, emphasizing instead Hansen's indomitable spirit and positive attitude, much encouraged by his father. Although limited in details, the book is definitely one to add to most collections because of its quality presentation of an important subject.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
