Triumphs, challenges, hopes and fears: a mother and daughter’s journey with Down syndrome uniquely conveyed in painting, drawing, photography, poetry and prose. Author/illustrator/mother Kari Burk says: “Perhaps the greatest obstacle faced by a person with special needs is being misunderstood and in turn, isolated, from life’s processes and events. This book is my way of bridging that gap, celebrating the people, places and images that have shaped our lives and inspired my art.”
Why we like it: A beautiful book that chronicles the life of a beautiful girl, her family and community. The writing, photography, art and poetry throughout will touch the hearts of all readers. A great book for families of all abilities.
