    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.

    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.

    A MUST READ FOR A FAMILY WITH A DOWN SYNDROME CHILD

    WE'LL PAINT THE OCTOPUS RED WAS AN EXCEPTIONAL BOOK. PARENTS EXPECTING OR WHO HAVE HAD A CHILD WITH DOWN SYNDROME SHOULD READ PURCHASE THIS BOOK. IT REVEALS TO PARENTS THAT THEIR CHILD/SIBLING IS PART OF THEM AND IS A CHILD AND A MEMBER OF THEIR FAMILY.
