Kaden's Shells

Embracing the ‘Super Powers’
of children with differences

by Jeanie Gould
illustrations by Dai Thomas

Kaden's Shells takes place in the quaint beach town of Pacific Grove, where young Kaden is spending a week with his grandparents.

As they delightfully explore the many marvels at the beach, his grandma takes the opportunity to weave in life lessons of understanding, compassion, and empathy for those with differences; celebrating their super powers… not despite of their differences… but because of them. 

Their talks then translate to Kaden's nightly, adventurous dreams where he engages with a variety of friends, each with a different disability, exploring each other's super powers. These dreams teach him that we are all more alike than we are different, and just like him, we all just want to be understood, loved, and accepted…and that WE ALL have super powers to share. 

This whimsical and sensitively written story by California author Jeanie Gould is intended for young children beginning their school journey. Kaden's Shells is a wonderful catalyst for discussion to help children better understand and support children with differences, thus supporting their peers, making new friends, and ultimately stretching their own character.
