There's a new children's book out from Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare that explores how to talk to children with disabilities and whether it's okay to bring up their disability.
The answer to that question is in the title of the book: "It's Okay to Ask."
It's really a book for people who aren't disabled, but might not know exactly how to interact when they meet someone who looks different.
The book tells the stories of five children who have disabilities or medical conditions and are asked about things like their wheelchair or leg braces by other children.
Two guests joined MPR News' Tom Weber to discuss the book and offer advice for talking about disabilities.
