Zulay, who is blind, can read, write, draw, sing, dance, and do math like her three best friends and the rest of her primary grade classmates, but can she learn to run track in her new pink sneakers? Zulay and a special teacher, Ms. Turner, practice for the race every day, assisted by Zulay’s white cane. On the day of the race, Zulay’s friends and family cheer her on as she runs the race successfully. This message of the story is that determination and perseverance lead to successful accomplishment of goals. Readers of the book are introduced to the Braille alphabet (within the text, each child’s name, written in the Braille alphabet, appears on illustrations of each child’s desk), and a chart of the entire Braille alphabet is printed on the back of the book so that children can practice writing their own names in Braille. Recommended for a range of ages.
