My Friend Isabelle by Eliza Woloson & Illus by Bryan Gough

Today is National Down's Syndrome Day! I saw this book in the library a few weeks ago and brought it home because it was so cute. After reading it, I realized it was about a little girl with Down's Syndrome. 

It is such a delightful little book. And it was written by the mother of a little girl, Isabelle, with Down's in Colorado, which makes it even more delightful! 

The illustrations are so dear and sweet. 

I like all the bright clear colors.

Charlie and Isabelle are good friends that are not the same. 

Charlie is tall, Isabelle is short. 

Isabelle is a little slower on her feet. 

One of the reasons I love this book is that it doesn't talk about Down's Syndrome. In a book for older kids, a discussion of Down's would be great, but for a younger age, it would be useless words. This book just focuses on things young children would notice and understand. 

As a Down's mother, I adore the message this book sends. 

We are all different, but being different can make things interesting and fun!
