About the Book-Arnie and the New Kid by Nancy Carlson
Top cat Arnie teases Philip because he is confined to a wheelchair. Yet when Arnie falls down the school steps and breaks a leg, twists a wrist, and sprains a tail, he begins to see life from a different perspective.

What this book teaches-Empathy
My review of the book:
This is a book about bullying and special needs. There is a character in the story that is in a wheelchair and he is made to feel bad because of his disability. A character named Arnie, has a difficult time accepting the new kid. We get to see Arnie’s journey into accepting the new kid.
