January has suddenly become the most happening month for My Friend Suhana. For those who don’t know, I wrote this book with my young daughter Aanyah Abdullah, and the story is inspired by Aanyah’s special bond with her friend Suhana who has cerebral palsy and is unable to communicate in the traditional manner.
We received word that the book won the prestigious Dolly Gray Children’s Literature Award. Suddenly we became inundated with interview requests. We appeared on KVUE TV (See the interview) last week and were interviewed by KUT for its Texas Standard program just this week (hear the audio at the 24:40 mark). The KVUE story was shared over 280 times and received 1800 likes. We feel blessed to have this opportunity to spread this message of love, friendship and uncommon bond with the rest of the world.
