I read this book for class and I enjoyed it very much. The stories of the authors will make you laugh. Great read to learn about two different perspectives about down syndrome and how they dealt with having a developmental disability.

I know a person who used to be in my class and everyone was mean to her but there was one girl who was nice to her. I guess it was because she was sweet and hugged everyone. Now ihave a friend and her little brother has downs and it breaks my heart that we were mean. Everyone who has interactes with children with downs should read this book!Was this review helpful?

I gave this book to my Sister-in-law, mother of my 19 year old twin nephews who have Downs, and she really hasn't said anything about it, but my nephew Jamie loved it and I would certainly recommend it for any teenager with Downs, who can read and if they have been mainstreamed their classmates would also find it helpfulWas this review helpful?
