This is a story about a young boy named Milton who has a social and learning disability. Just like many people Milton has an interest and a hobby. He enjoys collecting buttons that he finds or that he is given. Milton is not as outgoing as his school mates due to his disability, so, until Joan decides to introduce herself, he did not get to share his outstanding button collection. Together, Joan and Milton made amazing creations. Other classmates joined in the fun after Joan was kind enough to introduce him to her friends. Social inclusion is an important part of a child's emotional, social, and developmental growth. This book gives children a glimpse of how much fun they can have by looking past a persons' differences.
