Win a copy of the ‘Little Miss Jessica Goes to School’ book!

Little Miss Jessica BookJessica Smith has kindly donated a signed copy of her book ‘Little Miss Jessica Goes to School’ to Limbs 4 Life and we would like to give this to one of the children in the Limbs 4 Kids community.

Jess is a former Australian Paralympian swimmer who was born missing her left forearm and this is her first children’s book. Her book is about a little girl with one hand, who goes to school for the very first time and experiences what it feels like to be ‘different’. The book, although targeted at a younger audience, contains many crucial messages for young people as well as adults, about body image, self-acceptance, tolerance, difference, friendship and respect. For more information visit Jessica’s website.

To win a copy we are asking that children tell us in 50 words or less what their first experience at attending kindergarten, pre-school or school was like. Children can write their own or ask parents to write their story down for them. Please email your child’s story to us at by the 20th of July. We will publish the winner in the next edition of Thrive magazine.

Good luck everyone!
