My first book sketchnote in a LOONNGG time! THE LOVE LETTERS OF ABELARD AND LILY is a super sweet romance between a boy on the autism spectrum and a girl with ADHD. I LOVED it so much that I finished it in a day! I also really liked that it was set in Austin so I could actually picture where events were taking place! I used the Apple Pencil and the Doodle Art app, which is why there’s an awkward border on the left. 😂😂. I’ll be booktalking this book and a few others in a Junior Library Guild webinar next month-check back for details!
Happy Dreamer is delightful! It shows the way a child's brain may not be still, but rather bouncing around dreaming or even sitting still dreaming. It shows children that it is ok to be silly and has a beautiful fold out two page spread of different types of "dreamers."
