Meet Annie is an adorable book written by Heather J. Scharlau-Hollis, who has a daughter with Down syndrome. Annie has Down syndrome and she describes all the way she is “just like you.” This is an easy read book for kids and gets the message across that, “We need to understand that we are all different and those differences make us who we are.”
Each page shows Annie doing or feeling something, and then has a question for the reader – I like how that engages the reader to think about things too. For instance one page says, “I love to play with my toys just like you. I like my balls and baby dolls best. What is your favorite toy?”
Not all representation is good.
