"Squishy Sand" is the story about a boy named Leigh and his two friends on a day when they are at the beach. Leigh is in a wheelchair and wants to figure out how he can be with his friends in the sand when his wheelchair keeps getting stuck in the sand. His friends think of different ideas, including using his wheelchair like a bobsled in the snow and having dogs pull it!
Leigh is doing his best to stay strong and not let his disability get to him while he and Cosmo and Tara make costumes for the Medieval Fair their school is holding. Leigh wants to be that knight in shining armor and gets a bit testy with his friends as they start goofing around and having fun during their ‘project’ day. Leigh wants more than anything to look cool… like everyone else will. But as time moves forward, Leigh starts to kick his anger and impatience away and starts to see the joy in all of it.
