Life as Jamie Knows It: An Exceptional Child Grows Up based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Mr. Berube's book about his son, Jamie, is a warm, revealing account of their family life. The story is not just about Jamie, but how their family has been enriched and affected by Jamie who was born with Down syndrome. Since Mr. Berube is a disabilities studies scholar, he also enlightens the reader about people with Down syndrome. Although people with Down syndrome have more mainstream educational opportunities, once they've left school they're often isolated and sad. Jamie's life by contrast is neither isolated nor sad, but Jamie, his parents and others in his life have worked hard to help him. This book is both interesting and informative.
