Small Steps: The Year I Got Polio
By Peg Kehret and Book Report By Vanessa Hiebner
Going through a lot of physical therapy, Peg starts to heal very quickly and is moved to walking sticks and then even on to walking on her own a few more steps every day. Even though Peg gets better while her friends have no progress, they do not envy her but instead encourage and are so happy for her. She soon gets to the point where she is discharged and able to go home for good. As she gets back into the normal routine of her life at home, she is able to go back to school. She fears that they will only stare at her walking sticks and that no one would help her, but soon finds out that everyone more than welcomes her and offers her a helping hand whenever she needs it.
