As Rick Hansen wheels around the globe on his incredible Man in Motion World Tour, the children he meets are encouraged to dream their own dreams and work to make them come true. In China, after meeting Rick, Lin, who longs to be a ballerina, pictures herself leaping gracefully over a wall as high as the Great Wall of China. Back in Canada, Jack makes great progress in his wheelchair -- even learning to do a wheelie -- as he eagerly awaits his hero's return. Rick Hansen's compelling journey twenty-five years ago is retold for young readers and brought to life in this beautifully illustrated book.

This book includes all sorts of little stories about Rick Hansen's Man in Motion World Tour, and teaches the reader about the importance or strength and perseverance. An inspiring and sometimes tear-jerking read that will touch children and adults alike. Gorgeously illustrated as well.
