This was a GoodReads First Read, and I received a copy to review. That said, this was a cute story about dealing with disabilities and keeping a positive outlook. Mari loses her leg in a terrible accident, and her family struggles with making her find herself after.A visit to a lake house soon shows Mari that she's not the only one struggling with disabilities, and that a disability does not mean that she cannot do anything, as she believes. Thanks to the support of a loving family, Mari goes on [...]
Story presentation appropriate for young children to begin a dialogue about kids who are different from them and to celebrate those differences.Young children should be exposed to this charming little book. Awareness that we re all different at a young age invites understanding of individual differences without creating biases or unfounded fears.
I love this little book and can't wait to read it to my great grandson, who is still a little too young, only 5 months. Ruth, if you read these reviews, know that I also collect autographed books and will treasure this one. Thanks and God bless.Roni M.

-Received a copy from the story is very touching about a little girl who loses her leg is a tragic accident and battles depression. The only thing I really did not like is because this is a childrens book how there is a long narrative on each page you read. I believe a few more pictures or at least less words on the page would really benefit for a child reading this.
I liked the message the book gave. It teaches you to never give up no matter what and teaches us that having a disability isn't the end of the world. Thought it was really interesting and would recommend it to any kid whether they're disabled or not
A wonderful story!
A great story. My daughter loved it.
