Reviews of the book...
"Isabelle has Down syndrome, but that doesn't matter to her friend Charlie.... 'Life is more fun with friends like Isabelle,' Charlie says, and readers will agree."
-School Library Journal

"A magical book that presents acceptance and inclusion of people with disabilities with beautiful simplicity."
-Elizabeth Goodwin, Chair and Co-Founder National Down Syndrome Society

"This wonderful book celebrates the innocence and wisdom of children. We can all learn from this endearing tale of friendship."
-Eunice Kennedy Shriver, Founder Special Olympics

"What is outstanding about this book is that the story line never mentions that Isabelle has a disability. The message in My Friend Isabelle is that everyone is different. Isabelle is a valuable child who is desirable as a friend."
-Review of Disability Studies, Volume II, Issue 1, 2006

Review of iTunes version... "The ITunes version is very well done, the words are highlighted as the story goes along for early readers to follow and the illustrations look bright and cheery. When the illustrations are too large, and span both pages, the screen scrolls across both slowly, so you can see it all. The narrator does an excellent job reading the text with enough inflection in her voice to keep the story entertaining.

I give the story a 5 out of 5 for teaching tolerance and being a beautiful story about acceptance that my children love to read. I also give the ITunes platform a 5 out of 5, and would definitely purchase other books that use this platform again!"
