"A Miracle at Bates Memorial is a tale of a sensitive young girl and how she sees and relates to her surrounding world. This adventure will help parents, school personnel, adults, and other students to have empathy for children who have speech, learning, behavioral, or sensory issues. This book made me feel like I was a part of Li-Li’s life as she experiences fear of loud noises, bustling crowds, unfamiliar touches, and squeezing hugs. However, at the same time, she enjoys being a typical child, doing regular activities like eating candy, going to church, and reading. Li-Li comes to believe Mommy understands her feelings and will help her. That is her special miracle! I highly recommend this narrative to anyone who loves children. If it is shared with a child experiencing these difficulties, he or she will understand that others can be having the same kind of feelings. Children as young as kindergarten would enjoy this book with its deep message and many beautiful illustrations. I give this book four stars and hope Li-Li has many more adventures in the future!"
