This book was really cute, and I really liked that the story does not focus only on Misty's disability. Misty was looking for her stuffed monkey named Chimpy, but she couldn't remember where she last left him. Her and her dad retraced Misty's steps and eventually found Chimpy in the bathroom. I really enjoyed that this book had actual pictures that showed Misty and her dad's journey. ( )

This book was adorable. This book is about a little girl, Misty, who is looking for her stuffed chimpy. She cannot go to bed without it, so she has to retrace her steps to find him. She ends up finding Chimpy in the bathroom. Misty has down syndrome, but it is not said in the book. Readers only know about her disability because of the photographs used. The author portrays Misty as an ordinary child, who lost their toy. Misty's disability does not make her who she is because, in fact, it is not even mentioned throughout the entire book. If the author was to leave out the photographs, readers would not know about her disability. ( )

What I like about this book is that it isn't centered at all on the main character's handicaps, showing kids that behind Downs Syndrome are regular people who struggle with the same things as everyone else, in this particular instance, searching for a lost toy you just can't sleep without and having to retrace your steps. I think this could be a great tool to facilitate discussion about people with handicaps. ( )

This story tells the story of a little girl named Misty who has down syndrome looking for Chimpy. She does not do anything without her stuffed animal, Chimpy. Her father tells her it is time for bed but she insisted on not going to bed without Chimpy. This book did a terrific job on parenting. The dad talks to Misty in a calming way and helps her look for Chimpy. ( )

Where's Chimpy by Bernice Rabe is an endearing story about Misty, a young girl with down syndrome. Misty cannot doanything without her stuffed animal, Mr. Chimpy. The father walks her through her day and has her retrace her steps, but she finds all of the other toys she played with throughout the day. Finally, she remembers Chimpy is in the bathroom. She returns to her bedroom only to find that her dad has lost his glasses. She giggles and asks him the same question he asked her at the beginning, "Where have you been?" I liked that they used real pictures to use for this story. I feel like it is more relatable to see real life pictures so that the reader is able to make real-life connections. ( )
