Willow the Walrus-Educating Children about Down Syndrome

 Author: Shelly Weiss  : 2013

This book is aimed at educating children ages 4-8. The story explains a specific medical condition in kid-friendly language in hopes of demystifying perceived differences to readers so they can comfortably and freely interact with others who are unlike themselves without fearing the unknown. Educating children early in life will help them appreciate diversity and acceptance. Includes discussion questions for the child who has the medical condition, and discussion questions for the child who does not have the medical condition. 16-pages.
