The folks who created the TV show Arthur have invited 6- to 12-year-olds to create a new friend for Arthur, D.W., and Buster. The new character should have a unique ability, character trait, or disability that makes him or her different but no less fun. The idea is to get parents and kids thinking about what life is like for special-needs kids and to stress the importance of inclusion. The child whose character is selected will be featured, along with the character, on a live segment of the Arthur show. Now that's TV worth watching.
