IMAGINATION UPSIDE DOWN… THE WORLD OF THORNTON W. BLEASE
Children’s books are mirrors in which youth identify with the characters found in books they read. All children prefer to emerge themselves with characters that have similar feelings and experiences as they do. Books also serve as opportunities to learn about the world beyond their families and local communities. They are powerful vehicles for self- approval, and promotion of empathy and acceptance of one another’s differences. Therefore, Children’s Literature must be inclusive. It needs diverse characters, including characters with (dis)abilities- like me.
Words jump in
Are they a code?
Take them in, analyze
Shake out their meaning
Like apples on a tree Hopefully the truth behind them will be revealed.
Nature’s Fishbowl: Central Auditory Processing Disorder
In a fishbowl
While life all around
Like a goldfish in a bowl Swimming in circles
Pushing the limits, yet going nowhere. Drowning
A desire to escape, to become
Part of life,
Around the brain’s reef.
To enter the frightening world, Nightmare outside of the tide pool Where tentacles entangle the words. Perhaps, a compromise
A safety net
A cerebral aquarium
Free but safe.
Until words learn to swim without drowning.
