The lively text and enchanting illustrations combine to bring to life Rick's amazing feat and the impact it has had on children everywhere.

This book includes all sorts of little stories about Rick Hansen's Man in Motion World Tour, and teaches the reader about the importance or strength and perseverance. An inspiring and sometimes tear-jerking read that will touch children and adults alike. Gorgeously illustrated as well.
