I would like to introduce myself….. My name is Annie Streit, and I am a resident of Noblesville, IN, and a Ball State University graduate with a degree in Social Studies Education. I have recently published my first children’s book titled Scooter and His Scoot Scoot. It is a heart warming story about a joyful dog named Scooter. Scooter was born different, but with the aid of his scoot scoot, he does not let anything slow him down. Scooter and his friends help teach us that everyone is different, and it is what’s in our hearts that truly matters.
I have been wheelchair bound since I had a diving accident in May of 2005. Scooter’s story stems from my own experiences of navigating through life in a wheelchair. I have spoken to many groups about my accident, adapting to life in a wheelchair, and overcoming obstacles. I have a true passion for working with children and being an advocate for those with disabilities. I plan on being able to use my books as another way to reach out and educate children on the importance of acceptance, and being able to see past outward appearances and differences.
