Unbound: The Life and Art of Judith Scott

Judith Scott was born with Down syndrome. She was deaf, and never learned to speak. She was also a talented artist. Judith was institutionalized until her sister Joyce reunited with her and enrolled her in an art class. Judith went on to become an artist of renown with her work displayed in museums and galleries around the world.

This is the true story of a woman with Down syndrome who, when given the chance, proved to the world that she could soar — and of the sister who believed in her when no one else would. Poignantly told by Joyce Scott with Brie Spangler and beautifully illustrated by Caldecott Honor artist, Melissa Sweet, Unbound is inspiring and warm, showing us that we can soar beyond our perceived limitations and accomplish something extraordinary.

Description

"In delicate lines, illustrator Sweet (Alphamaniacs) commemorates the story’s most emotive moments — Joyce’s desolation, clutching twin stuffed bunnies, when Judy vanishes, and the whole-family embrace that enfolds Judy when she arrives to live with Joyce’s family. Told in an order that allows readers to appreciate Judy the way Joyce does, this book’s creators successfully render a personal story of love, nurture, and individual gifts." — Publishers Weekly
