Lucky Dogs, Lost Hats, and Dating Don'ts is a collection of over a dozen hi-lo (high interest-low reading level) short stories for people with intellectual disabilities or other learning challenges. Middle schoolers through adults will identify with the book's true-to-life stories and their characters (some with developmental disabilities, some without), who want to live as independently as they can. And just like real life, there are episodes of hilarity, poignancy, messiness, responsibility, longing, fulfillment, and adventure. From roommate troubles to wanting a pet, and from seeking a girlfriend to going camping with friends, these appealing short stories engage readers and impart subtle life lessons. A set of questions at the end of each story encourages discussion and further self-reflection. Stories included are: - A Day of Kindness - A Very Lucky Dog - Adventures in Camping - Bad Hair Day - Dear Diary - Dirty Dishes - Doctor Visit - Evening Walks - How to Find a Girlfriend - Road Trip - Slugger - Sneezes - The Kissing Scene - Tornado at Big Burger Written by experts in literacy and inclusion for people with developmental disabilities, stories range in reading grade level from 1.5 to 3.5 Flesch Kincaid scale) and are illustrated with large format black and white photos.
