What I loved: This is a great book for young children who may be in a similar situation. The story speaks to their fears and reassures them that they will get back out there. While the reader follows Lulu, they also follow through images the journey of the yellow letter. When they meet, Lulu is changed. The book speaks not only to the physical healing around a broken bone but also the emotional and mental healing that is needed. The artwork is intriguing, drawn in black and white with only yellow as a juxtaposed color throughout. The letter is also placed on the page for the reader to open and experience, as a nice, interactive touch.
Final verdict: A story about overcoming fears, OUT ON A LIMB is a picture book read about healing from a broken limb.
