This client wanted a simple children’s wellness journal that had callbacks to a previously written children’s book about Juvenile Myositis (JM). JM is a rare and life-threatening autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks its own cells. I have a cousin who was diagnosed with this disease in 2018, so this hit close to home for me. I referenced the previous illustrations to create a feelings page for this journal that shows children what each emotion looks like. I was also able to put together a list of vocabulary words along with the fifty-two journal entries, creating one for every week. This wellness journal is soon to be distributed to select hospitals.
