All Kids Can Play & Dream.

Ben is a sweet, smart boy who loves sounds, movement, being outside and playing with his friends & family. And he has cerebral palsy. But that doesn’t define him.

Join him on this fun journey into his imagination. Everyone loves the beach … and so does Ben! He flies with kites. He runs with crabs! He spends special time with his brother and sister, mommy and daddy.

Ben smiles, and you will too.

What People Are Saying...

Anitra Schulte, Special Needs Mom

As a mom of a child with special needs, I rarely see picture book characters with abilities similar to those of my child. The main character in Ben's Adventures is Ben - a boy with cerebral palsy who uses a wheelchair for mobility. It's powerful for children and families to see themselves reflected in books. Ben's Adventures provides this experience for kids and families alike.

Lisa Olinger, MS, Education & Early Childhood Teacher:

Ben's Adventures: A day at the beach is a story of imagination and dreams as told from the perspective of a young boy with cerebral palsy. Ben does not let his physical limitations prevent him from enjoying a day at the beach with his family. Ben's Adventures reminds us that anything is possible if you believe in your dreams!
