Author-Illustrator Team Kelly Fritsch, Anne McGuire & Eduardo Trejos  say:

“We Move Together is about sharing some of the gifts we have received by being lucky enough to be a part of disability culture and community as disabled people, disability studies scholars, and disability activists. As an author-illustrator team, we came together through our shared belief in the power of storytelling as well as a shared frustration about the lack of stories reflecting our own experiences of disability justice, culture, and community.”

About the book:

We Move Together is a bold and colourful exploration of all the ways that people navigate through the spaces around them and a celebration of the relationships we build along the way. We Move Together follows a mixed-ability group of kids as they creatively negotiate everyday barriers and find joy and connection in disability culture and community.
