Ai and Clare love to play in the outdoor environment surrounded by nature. They have fun leaping like frogs, flitting around like butterflies and running freely in the fields. Their encounter with Raj helps them understand a little of what “special” means. Nevertheless, they are happy to have found a new friend to play with them in the great outdoors!
The author aims to encourage children to play outdoors and learn to befriend other children with special needs.
