Taking Down Syndrome to SchoolAuthor: Jenna Glatzer, Karen Schader, Tom Dineen : 2002
These beautifully illustrated and fun-to-read storybooks simplify and normalize 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 addition, children whose conditions set them apart as being different begin to feel accepted and safe. Each book includes a Kids’ Quiz to reinforce new information and Ten Tips for Teachers to provide additional facts and ideas for teacher use. In Taking Down Syndrome to School, Nick’s story explains what Down Syndrome is and how it affects children born with it.
