Publisher Comments:

In school, Moses and the rest of his classmates are given the assignment of choosing a friend to write about. As he wonders which person to choose, Moses thinks of his circle of friends and what they share together. Some friends are kids like Jimmy, who says funny things, and Manuel, who races with Moses on the playground. Other friends are grown-ups like Mom and Dad, and teachers. Neighbors too, can be friends, like Kate, his teen-aged babysitter. Kate owns two really cute iguanas. One of the iguanas, Zaki, is missing toes. That's it! Moses will write about Zaki. After all, they really have something in common. Moses and Zaki both have special needs. Zaki, with her missing toes, must figure out new ways to move around and get where she wants to go, which is exactly what Moses must do in his wheelchair! Through this beautifully photographed and engaging story, children discover that living with disability can be a positive experience. An afterword about disabilities, Moses, and iguanas provides material for further discussion.
