Thinking beyond special needs to my daughter's special purpose...
Beyond Down syndrome, obstructive sleep apnea, heart problems, and asthma is Jaycee, my daughter, loved by her dad, her brother, me, and God.
This is a lovely story filled with pictures and a description of Sean's life. It is a short read which would be suitable for classrooms, awareness talks, or conversation starters with siblings. My husband picked this book up at a Down syndrome conference and even got it signed by the author.
This is the only book listed here that I have not yet personally read. From what I understand, this book is a series of dialogues between 2 males with Down syndrome who share their thoughts, feelings, dreams, and issues in life.
Check these books and increase your understanding of those with Down syndrome!
This post is for Down syndrome Awareness Month where bloggers write for all 31 days of October for Trisomy 21. I am part of this 31 for 21 challenge. During the month of October, the NDSS asks that we celebrate people with Down syndrome and make others aware of abilities and accomplishments. Individuals with Down syndrome have abilities that need to be celebrated!
