Thanks for the opportunity to review this book in exchange for honest feedback. This is all about Rita. To be honest, this is Rita’s world and I’m just living in it. I really enjoyed learning a bit about this delightful individual through the mode of artistic expression. My favorite painting of Rita’s was the summer flowers, which she says make her feel happy. I agree! Another fav was the telemarketer drawing. I definitely had a chuckle. Rita has Downs Syndrome, and through this book, she tells us a little about her life experiences. Each panel comes alongside a painting or drawing she has made. She’s got some really interesting things to share and a great sense of humor. I’m glad to have the opportunity to read a bit more about her and see her artwork.
