More About This Book

Overview

A Child born with albinism hears her mother lovingly speak the words, "Mirror, mirror reflecting from the wall, I am seeing the fairest child of all. Smiling warmly like the rays of the sun, you bring much happiness to everyone." The child falls asleep feeling a true sense of security. She dreams of magnificent pale creatures like herself and contentedly sees herself playing amongst her fair-haired friends. The reader feels her child-like innocence as she is later approached by a bully. She appears fearful but not defeated. There is no tolerance for this inappropriate behavior as "The creatures form a circle to protect these fair children from any disrespect." She awakens and shares her dream with her mother and is compassionately reminded of her unique beauty. "Be proud of who you are, let your love shine and hold your head up high fair child of mine." This book was inspired by the author's personal experiences and her strong desire to write a book for children with albinism and their families, as well as for all children. My Fair Child gently speaks to our hearts as it is reminiscent of a child's innocence and the infinite beauty of human diversity.

    a book worth reading for children of all ages

    This is a wonderful book about a rare disorder. Based upon the authors personal experiences of being teased and bullied, this book is tenderly and skillfully written from a child's perception. The story is complimented by beautiful imagery, and "dream-like" illustrations which were inspired by drawings done by the authors two children. And although the book appears to be written about a specific disability, its universal message, that there is beauty in everything and to be proud of who you are, will touch the hearts and souls of anyone who has ever felt "different" or cast out. Definitely a book worth reading for children of all ages!!
