Helix is a new student at The Tortington School, who has a physical challenge. “I was born without being able to use my back legs,” he so bravely explains to his class. Helix’s new friends ask him to play games, like tag, hopscotch, hide-and-seek, kickball and football, but due to his physical challenge, he is not able to play. Then Herman comes up with a creative idea and it saves the day. With a lot of thoughtful kindness, Herman helps Helix play all the games. The last few pages of the book are character pages. Each student in Helix’s class is a different species of tortoise; the character pages include some basic information about each species, along with a fun fact. There is even a page that documents the true story of Helix. When Children read this book they will learn about being brave, acceptance, kindness, problem solving, physical challenges, perseverance and they will get a little education on tortoises. Helix Gets His Wheels will be part a series of books discussing social emotional learning standards, taught in a fun way, through a cute tortoise, that really exists.
