Description
*Odyssey Honor Audiobook*
Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah's inspiring true story—which was turned into a film, Emmanuel's Gift, narrated by Oprah Winfrey—is nothing short of remarkable.
Born in Ghana, West Africa, with one deformed leg, he was dismissed by most people—but not by his mother, who taught him to reach for his dreams. As a boy, Emmanuel hopped to school more than two miles each way, learned to play soccer, left home at age thirteen to provide for his family, and, eventually, became a cyclist. He rode an astonishing four hundred miles across Ghana in 2001, spreading his powerful message: disability is not inability. Today, Emmanuel continues to work on behalf of the disabled.
Thompson's lyrical prose offers a powerful celebration of triumphing over adversity.
Includes an author's note with more information about Emmanuel's charity.

fullDescription
*Odyssey Honor Audiobook*
Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah's inspiring true story—which was turned into a film, Emmanuel's Gift, narrated by Oprah Winfrey—is nothing short of remarkable.
Born in Ghana, West Africa, with one deformed leg, he was dismissed by most people—but not by his mother, who taught him to reach for his dreams. As a boy, Emmanuel hopped to school more than two miles each way, learned to play soccer, left home at age thirteen to provide for his family, and, eventually, became a cyclist. He rode an astonishing four hundred miles across Ghana in 2001, spreading his powerful message: disability is not inability. Today, Emmanuel continues to work on behalf of the disabled.
Thompson's lyrical prose offers a powerful celebration of triumphing over adversity.
Includes an author's note with more information about Emmanuel's charity.
reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Narrator Adjoa Andoh's rich, clear voice resonates with emotion in this inspirational audio biography for young listeners. Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah is a world-renowned advocate for disability rights and a national hero in Ghana. Born without a right tibia (shin bone), Emmanuel grew up with physical limitations, superstitious fears, and societal injustices that severely restricted his opportunities.Yet, against the odds, encouraged by his mother and emboldened by his dreams, Emmanuel chose to make a difference. He pedaled a bicycle nearly 400 miles around Ghana in just 10 days to raise awareness of the physically challenged and share his message that "being disabled does not mean being unable." A gentle musical score and environmental sound effects complement Andoh's engaging narration. The author's note provides details of this extraordinary man's ongoing contributions.
