Don't Be Rude, Let's Include! is about love and inclusion through enlightening/reinforcing the fact that the disabled are people too. Everyone has a purpose. Everyone is welcome. Everyone deserves love. Change your mood, don't be rude, let's include! This story shows the creative methods one could use to enlighten/reinforce life morals that are as basic as saying please and thank you to your children. Treating people with dignity and respect is a relevant life skill that needs to be used every chance we get. The author explains, "While playing dolls and action figures with my children, I noticed they were shunning the dolls and action figures that were missing one of or some combination of arms, hands, legs, or feet. I immediately recognized this as a teaching moment." Inclusion and love for all. Everyone has a purpose. Everyone is welcome. Everyone deserves love.
