Beau the Boxer's First Day at School

Beau the Boxer's First Day at School

Written By Michelle Wilson, M.A., Special Education
Illustrations By Zack Wilson

It’s Beau the Boxer’s first day at a new school. When Beau meets his new friends, he learns that they are all different. Some of his friends are better at Hide and Seek, some are better at going through obstacle courses, and some are better at chasing birds and squirrels. Beau must find something that they can all do together, so that no one is left out.

Join Beau and his friends as they learn that making everyone feel included can be fun.

We added a new book to Cay's shelf tonight! I can honestly say that both Eli(9) & Cay (2) LOVED it.

Y’all!! [Michelle Wilson] is one of the BEST educators I’ve ever worked with! Her knowledge is just out of this world! AND she’s using her skills to start writing children’s books!! She brought us a copy and it is just so good!! It’s about a dog who meets other dogs with different abilities. He quickly realizes that everyone isn’t able to play in the same ways, so he works to find a game that they can ALL play together! Is that not a message our youth need right now!?! This would be a great book for a class meeting!!

This is such a wonderful and fun children’s book to help teach kids about kindness and inclusion. As a teacher, this book is an amazing addition to my classroom library! All of my students loved the illustrations and the story! They are already asking for more “Beau” books!
