What We Are About
Someone Special Uniquely Personalized Books creates picture books for children with special needs. Our mission is to spread the message of acceptance, awareness, and kindness for all children.
Someone Special Books came about when it was time for Heather's daughter, Maya, to go off to preschool. Maya was born with a rare metabolic condition called Propionic Acidemia, and Heather was concerned about her teacher and classmates understanding the condition and accepting that Maya is no different than anyone else. Heather created an "All About Me" picture book that Maya was able to take to school with her and have the teacher read to the class. This book helped ease Heather's anxiety, and make Maya more comfortable in school. In hopes more books could do the same for millions of other parents and children, Someone Special Books was created. Someone Special Books is on a mission to spread the message of acceptance, awareness, and kindness for all children.
