Journal Entry 2 by wingKateKintailwing at Burke, Virginia USA on Monday, April 24, 2017
This book was given to us by one of the authors at the festival today. Several of us passed the book around and read it during the festival today.

It's a fun book with the main message that it's okay to be who you are, even if it isn't like anyone else. The story is told through several stories--one of two good friends who draw chalk pictures and tell stories about them. I especially love that one of the girls The stories within the story are full of color, creativity, and fantasy. They've got flying dragons and princesses and mermaids. It was a fun read with some heartwarming moments.

Thanks for sharing it with us!

I don't know when I received this book or why I didn't journal it at the time. Sorry about that.

I really want to love this book. It's very sweet that a little girl with Down Syndrome wrote such an imaginative tale, but honestly the illustrations detract from the whole thing. These are the sorts of stories that call for sweeping vistas, rather than something that looks like it was drawn with a computer mouse and an over-reliance on copy-paste. That said, I hope this isn't Megan Cooper's last book. Her enthusiasm is infectious despite the lackluster artwork.

I'm bringing this to today's BCinDC meetup in Alexandria, VA

This was handed to me at today's BC-in-DC meeting. I'll read it and then bring it the next meeting I go to for someone else to read.

This is a sweet children's book about being different. One of the authors has Down's Syndrome, as does one of the characters in the book, so I'm guessing there is some level of autobiographical content embedded in these stories. Perhaps the most impressive thing about this book is that it includes messages for both those who are different and for those who are "normal" (whatever that means). It is a reminder that friendship is possible, even for those who are different, and encourages people to reach out to the outsider to offer friendship. Very well done.

Caught! Thanks for this book!

Journal Entry 9 by wingSqueakyChuwing at Rockville, Maryland USA on Sunday, January 21, 2018
This is the story of two girls, Pauline and Tiff, who were friends, supported one another, and loved to draw. Both were aware of their own shortcomings, but in the chalked tales they created, they were able to show how support from another person can make an individual literally soar. Heartwarming!

Journal Entry 13 by wingSqnutZipswing at Silver Spring, Maryland USA on Friday, March 16, 2018
A book by Megan Cooper about friendship and being different. It's about embracing differences and celebrating using one's imagination. My only criticism about this book is that the artwork in the book was not the original chalk drawings by Megan Cooper and her friend/friends. I would love to see the original drawings by Megan Cooper, the book will be richer for it.

I am cleaning out the photos in my phone and checking all the BCIDs to make sure that I made journal entries about them. I am not too surprised that I didn't make an entry on this one. I read it on the day it was given to BCinDC, just hours after I learned my best friend was in terminal liver failure. I do remember really liking this book. I loved the imaginative sidewalk art. And I was touched by the bond between the two main characters. Glad to have read the book and glad to still be able to journal it more than a year later thanks to the magic of cellphones.
