About the Book

Ja’Mia and Ja’Nia are sisters who love their family. One of their aunts, “Tee-Tee,” doesn’t walk. Instead, she uses a wheelchair to get around. Despite this difference, Tee-Tee still accomplishes a lot, like being a professor and serving Veterans and their spouses. It’s not all about work, though; Tee-Tee has plenty of time to play with her darling nieces, too.
Sometimes, Ja’Mia and Ja’Nia ride in Tee-Tee’s chair with her, but they must be careful. The wheelchair is not a toy, but the way Tee-Tee gets around.
Our Auntie (“Tee-Tee”) Uses a Chair with Wheels helps children learn about and understand people with disabilities and different families. Tee-Tee’s story brings awareness to diversity and inclusion within families. If you would like to discuss disability and inclusion with your child, read this book today!
