Into Justin's World, by Heather Lyn Davis is a beautiful picture book for young children. The story is based on a young boy named Justin who is a little different from the rest of his family. Justin loves cats, his dog, and his lizard, whilst his Mom, Dad, and sister all enjoy going on walks, in all kinds of weather! They love to swim in the lake in summer and to feel the cool breeze in autumn, but Justin doesn't like any of it; it just makes him upset. One snowy day, out on their usual walk, Justin's family tries to get him to join in on the fun one last time. Whilst his family sits and enjoys their yummy snacks before heading home, Justin is intrigued by something in the river. To his surprise, it's a talking fish! The fish makes Justin feel stronger and he isn't scared anymore, and he invites Justin on an adventure. Will he accept the fish's kind offer? Find out in Into Justin's World!
Into Justin's World is an adorable book with a beautiful storyline. I love that the author Heather Lyn Davis created a character with special needs because it's important to educate children on accepting people as they are, no matter their differences. I also love the aspect of showing what it's like inside Justin's head; he drifts away from reality and goes off on an adventure of his own. The illustrations by Corryn Webb are creative and fit perfectly with the story, and the dialogue is told through rhyming, which will attract young readers from the very first page. I loved every second I spent reading this wonderful book and I hope Heather Lyn Davis continues to write more educational content for young children.
