About the Book

It’s bad enough to be lost in a maze of tall cornstalks if you’re a child, but what if you’re mentally handicapped too? This powerful childrens book from Jduy Bruns shows to emotion of power of how one event on a special family that uses language to draw relationships to explain love doesn not care about difference.

Critic Reviews

This is a charming, real-life glimpse of how a loving family relates to a mentally handicapped child. Every kid should read it.
Dr. J.C. Willke, President of Life Issues Institute


This glimpse into one event in the day-to-day life of a special family uses language that rolls off the tongue to draw relationships that explain how love does not care about difference. Delightful illustrations add depth of feeling.
Brenda Dales, Ph.D., Children’s Literature Instructor, Miami University, Oxford, Ohio


The softly rendered scenes and simple details of Donnie’s neighborhood captured in Mary Coons’s watercolor illustrations warmly portray the innocence of Donnie, and the goodness and love of his family and neighbors
