Just Like You
Joy is just like any other little girl… except that she was born with only one hand.
A positive story written by Marilyn Joy Anderson and published by FriesenPress. I had the opportunity to illustrate this children's book showcasing diversity, empathy, and acceptance, Just Like You raises awareness of physical disabilities and shows how, despite our differences, we are all the same.
Her family believes in her, but others are curious and concerned. How will Joy manage in life without two hands like most everyone else?
Follow Joy as she grows up and see how she does things her own way. Just like you, Joy takes on daily tasks like brushing her teeth and getting dressed, crafts at school like cutting and folding paper, and activities like riding a bike and playing basketball.
Even if Joy does things a little differently—she’s just as capable as anyone else.
