Children's Book Teaches About Spinal Cord Injury
Dewey Doo-it Helps Owlie Fly Again:
This book aims to teach children the values of compassion and helping others was inspired by Christopher Reeve's struggle with paralysis. When Dewey Doo-it's kite becomes lodged in a tree, the protagonist and his siblings ask renowned flyer Owlie for assistance, but they find the owl in a wheelchair after an accident. He shows the Doo-its how he can paint with his beak and use a special computer despite his disability. Wanting to help Owlie fly again, the Doo-its construct and launch him in a contraption that resembles a hang glider, and he successfully frees the kite.
