There’s a Norseman in the Classroom! book cover
A new children’s book teaches kids about inclusion as it raises funds for Special Olympics British Columbia. In There’s a Norseman in the Classroom!, children return from summer vacation to discover a new student has joined the class — and he happens to be a huge, hairy, noisy Norseman. While the kids initially reject Norm the Norseman because he is different, they learn to accept him and appreciate all the great things he brings to their classroom. Constable Grayson Smith of the Delta Police Department wrote the story, which features fun and vibrant visuals created by award-winning illustrator Timothy Banks. Two dollars from the sale of every book will go to benefit Special Olympics British Columbia, which Smith selected due to the fit with the subject matter and his involvement with the BC Law Enforcement Torch Run. “Over the past few years, I've had the opportunity to meet and become friends with several athletes, and it's awesome to see their talent and commitment to being active," Smith said.
