Lucas fell, and now he lives with a disability. A Level G story about resilience that first graders can read on their own.


Lucas is a happy lion.

One day Lucas Falls.

Can Lucas be happy again?


When Lucas falls off a ladder, he hurts his spine and can't use his legs anymore. He can't stand on them and he can't walk on them. Through self-determination and with the love of friends and family, Lucas learns new ways to take care of himself and have fun.

With easy-to-read language and cheerful art, children can learn about physical disabilities while they grow their confidence as readers.
