My nephew has a travelin’ eye. For a long time he was mistreated by some of his classmates. His difference made him feel sad and sometimes even mad. On one particular day, while I was at work, I came across this book called “My Travelin’ Eye” by Jenny Sue Kostecki-Shaw. When he read this book, he fell in love with it and he did just what Jenny did, he wore an eye patch he decorated himself and boy was he cool then! He learned how to accept himself and undertood that being different was not good or bad, it was just different.
