Clarksville Native Gary Harmon writes Children’s Book “My Daddy Takes His Legs Off”

 

Clarksville Book ReviewClarksville, TN – A teacher in the Knox County school system, Gary Harmon is a former student at Montgomery Central High School in Montgomery County. His children’s book, My Daddy Takes His Legs Off, tells the story of a little girl whose father was born with no right hand and only a pinky and a thumb on his left. Because he was born with no feet, he had prostheses from his knees down.

Children have insatiable curiosity and many are afraid of what they do not understand. As anyone with a disability knows, children will stare at a person who is different. Some will want to touch, some will want to run away, some will ask embarrassing questions, and some will cry.
