The Little Girl with the Big Voice

Written in Wé McDonald’s own words, The Little Girl with the Big Voice is a powerful story about a girl who courageously embraces her uniqueness and discovers her true voice—overcoming personal struggles and great challenges. Wé’s story inspires kids to work to fulfill their dreams and to expand their own understanding of themselves and the world around them.

“A wonderful story about a girl who learns to overcome obstacles and whose talent and determination allow her to shine. Families and kids of all ages should share this story with all those who want or need to be inspired.”
—Pedro A. Noguera, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Education, UCLA Graduate School of Education & Information Studies

The Boy Who Opened Our Eyes

Meet Mark, a fearless and warm six-year-old blind boy. Sometimes life is fun for Mark, and sometimes it’s challenging. But no matter what, Mark always inspires people to treat others with respect and empathy. Join Mark, and meet his family and friends… and his loyal dog, Sparkie, too. Mark will make you laugh and sometimes cry. But one thing’s for sure–once you get to know him, he will open your eyes and you will remember him forever.

“This heart warming story will not only inspire resilience and empower children to overcome obstacles, it will also teach them to show compassion and embrace differences”.
—David N. Dinkins, 106th Mayor of New York City
