This beautifully illustrated and fun-to-read storybook simplifies and normalizes complicated childhood conditions, like Down syndrome. When read aloud, other children can identify why a peer may be treated differently and begin to empathize with them. In Taking Down Syndrome to School, Nick’s story explains what Down Syndrome is and how it affects children born with it. The book includes a Kids’ Quiz to reinforce new information and Ten Tips for Teachers to provide additional facts and ideas for teacher use. Ages 4 and up.
