You're So Amazing!


Average rating

4 out 5

13 reviews

When people meet Joe, they often treat him as Amazing Joe or Poor Joe. But can't he just be . . . Joe? One-legged Joe is 'amazing'. He knows this because wherever he goes people always tell him he's amazing. Amazing for sliding down the slide, for kicking a ball . . . even walking to get an ice cream, or even just eating an ice cream. Of course, being Amazing Joe is better than being Poor Joe . . . A groundbreaking picture book which explores how we respond to disability. Winner of the Inclusive Books for Children Awards 2024.



I love this book because it shows you that everyone is amazing .

When people set eyes on Joe , they often treat his as amazing Joe or poor Joe. He wonders why he can’t just be named Joe? One legged Joe is amazing. He knows because whenever he kicks a ball,Slides down a slide and even eating ice cream. It’s better to be called amazing Joe than poor Joe right?
