My review

5 stars

I love that Mia and her friends narrated this book. It's a quick read but it has so much that teach us.

A great insight into a slice of Mia's day and relationship with others. People can be ignorant and cruel not only to people with Down syndrome but in general. The best is to educate them as Mia does with honesty and full of life and joy. I love that Mia enjoys surfing (I miss the ocean so much) and I loved the portrait artwork bit that she drew how she felt. I love that her parents knew immediately that it was hers. Has a great intro by the author and more Q&A at the end. Thank you Librofm and publisher for the audio copy.

From the Publisher:

Tween actress Mia Armstrong celebrates her fun, funny, beautiful childhood living with Down syndrome in this debut picture book - adapted for audio.

Mia likes many of the things other people like--going to the beach, the color blue, drawing. But she doesn't like when strangers stare at her because she looks different from them.

Down syndrome allows Mia to see and understand the world in a way that may not make sense to others. She considers it her superpower--and instead of it making her strange, she considers herself a masterpiece. As we all are.

In this spirited audiobook, Mia offers a glimpse into the life of a child with Down syndrome, helping some readers see themselves in a book and helping others understand those friends, classmates, and family members who are neurodivergent.
