Just Like You
by Marilyn Joy Anderson

Joy is just like any other little girl… except that she was born with only one hand. Her family believes in her, but others are curious and concerned. How will Joy manage in life without two hands like most everyone else?

Follow Joy as she grows up and see how she does things her own way. Just like you, Joy takes on daily tasks like brushing her teeth and getting dressed, crafts at school like cutting and folding paper, and activities like riding a bike and playing basketball. Even if Joy does things a little differently—she’s just as capable as anyone else.

A positive story showcasing diversity, empathy, and acceptance, Just Like You raises awareness of physical disabilities and shows how, despite our differences, we are all the same.

Like Joy in Just Like You, Marilyn Joy Anderson was born missing her right hand and part of her arm. She’s found that children are curious about her physical difference and often ask her how she does things with just one hand—questions that sometimes make nearby adults uncomfortable! Marilyn wrote this book to help answer these questions and provide knowledge to a wider audience.
