A True Story of Friendship and Winner of the Dolly Gray Children’s Literature Award
Award-winning author and designer Shaila Abdullah teams up with her 10-year-old daughter Aanyah to bring you this heartwarming tale of a little girl who forms a close bond with a child with cerebral palsy. The girl finds that through her art, she can reach her special friend Suhana.

"My Friend Suhana is a delightful read for a children's book. Very well illustrated with respect, friendship, and advocacy all in mind at the same time."
--Dawn Cruzan, President, Camp Craig Allen for all abilities

"This is the story of a seven-year-old's first attempt at unconditional love. Tough but tender, inspirational yet utterly real, this is a small gem of a tale. Highly recommended for anyone in the position of mentoring a beloved child through the hard places of life."
--Paula Huston, author of A Season of Mystery and A Land Without Sin

"My Friend Suhana is a charming and perceptive book that will draw its readers into empathy while allowing them to enjoy this heartwarming story of two uncommon friends."
--Chitra Divakaruni, author of Grandma and the Great Gourd

“Are you a teacher or a parent looking for a resource to help foster understanding and acceptance of children with disabilities? We recommend My Friend Suhana, a lovely children’s book written by a mother and daughter team. They have to be congratulated not only on their wonderful book but also for their eye-catching and informative web site.”––Lorna d’Entremont, Special Needs Book Review“My Friend Suhana tells the story of a young girl who forms a close bond with another young girl with cerebral palsy, mirroring an encounter that the author’s daughter, Aanyah Abdullah, had experienced while volunteering with her mother. Along with providing easy-to-understandinformation about cerebral palsy for a younger audience, My Friend Suhana emphasizes that communication and friendship can occur in non-traditional ways.”––Children’s Neurobiological Solutions"My Friend Suhana is a delightful read for a children's book.
