General children\'s positive attitudes toward disabled children is a crucial factor for a success of integrated education of disabled children. Reading stories about disabled people has proved to be effective for general children\'s attitude change and become pervasive in school. However, most research has focused on after reading activities marginalizing the issue of how disabled people are described in the stories. This paper explores general children\'s attitude change toward disabled people through a story rewriting activity. Two fifth grade classes participated in this study: Children in the control group read a total of 8 stories trying to grasp the meaning of the stories, while children in the experimental group were requested to rewrite a story on the basis of the 8 stories. The finding of this study demonstrates that the average of the experimental group children, with regard to the acceptance attitude toward disabled people, is much higher than that of the control group children. This paper also presents how to use stories about disabled people for general children\'s better understanding of them.
