Younger children are normally puzzled when they encounter other kids who suffer from Down's Syndrome. Here is a heartwarming and reassuring story of how an ordinary little boy comes to understand and befriend a child who has Down's Syndrome. These sensitively written stories encourage preschool-age and early-grades children to explore their feelings, deal with problems that trouble them, and understand others who have problems of their own. Each title speaks to a particular concern that children might encounter in the course of growing up. All books in this series have appealing color illustrations on every page, and are available in both English and Spanish language editions. A short section at the back of each book offers related advice to parents.
