We'll Paint the Octopus Red
This book is a very good book to read to children whose parents' are having/had a baby with Down syndrome. It talks about the feelings a child may have when they find out they are going to have a new brother or sister. It helps get a child excited about a new baby sister or brother with Down syndrome. It also shows readers all of the things a baby with Down syndrome can still do. In addition, the back of the book has a great question and answer section about Down syndrome.Was this review helpful?

A must have for an inclusion classroom teacher!
This book is great, it has a wonderful section in the back where there are common questions about Down's Syndrome asked by children and gives some wonderful answers. The story in itself is touching and holds children's attention. A fabulous method of introducing the idea to children that there are some people who have different needs and talents, but that they are still members of society and can do (for the most part) what other children can do. There is also a glossary section to the book and the illustrations are fabulous. A great discussion starter, my students were so interested. Another method of introducing diversity to students as well.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
