Taking Down Syndrome to School

Taking Down Syndrome to School

by Jenna Glatzer, Tom Dineen (Illustrator)

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Nick has Down Syndrome, a genetic disorder that is not uncommon. Nick does an excellent job of describing day to day living at school and encourages others to treat him as just another kid with the same hopes and dreams as other children. Published by a company that specializes in assisting young children in understanding certain medical conditions, the book uses a breezy tone and up front explanations on what it is like to live with Down Syndrome. Once segregated in special schools, Down Syndrome children often attend class right along with other children. Advances in medical and educational strategies have afforded Down Syndrome children longer and more fulfilling lives. The cartoon-like illustrations and the friendly tone of Nick, the speaker, enhance the appeal of this book. A short quiz, tips for teachers and additional resources are included. 2002, JayJo Books,
