Book Review: My Friend Isabelle

My Friend Isabelle
Written by Eliza Woloson and illustrated by Bryan Gough, this book for young children captures the essence of a bond that is free of prejudice.

How I wish everyone can be like Charlie, the little boy in the book, who truly appreciates his friendship with Isabelle, the little girl with Down syndrome. Charlie sees their differences but doesn't let that get in the way of their friendship.

I think this world needs more Charlies.

Have you read it? What do you think?
