When Oliver Speaks!
Children’s Book Illustration and Design
A heartfelt story about a young boy who struggles to overcome his stutter while finding the courage to accept it, When Oliver Speaks, is the story of an underdog who learns to rise. The story comes from a place of personal experience in that co-author Saadiq is a person who stutters and has done so for as long as he could speak.
‘“When Oliver Speaks” is a true story that informs readers about a disability that is not often talked about let alone put into words and published for society to read about. The story depicts a normal kid who others with this disability can relate to as themselves. Five Stars!’
