The book talks about the friendships between one child with down syndrome and one without and how they discover what they are good at and what they aren't so good at together. It is a way to help children understand from a child's perspective what down syndrome is. Suitable for ages 4-7 , found at the pierce college library

This book is great for any age when you are teaching about down syndrome. I think most of the questions in this book is what the children really are thinking. It also explains why they are they way they are and they way they look and how we can assist them when they need help.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764140760, Paperback)

The sensitively written Let's Talk About It Books encourage preschool-age and early-grades children to explore their feelings, deal with problems that trouble them, and understand others who have problems of their own. Each title speaks to a particular concern that children might encounter in the course of growing up. All books in this series have appealing color illustrations on every page, and are available in both English and Spanish language editions. A short section at the back of each book offers related advice to parents. My Friend Has Down Syndrome describes a condition that affects many families. Younger children are normally puzzled when they encounter other kids who suffer from Down Syndrome. Here is a heartwarming and reassuring story of how an ordinary child comes to understand and befriend another child who has Down Syndrome.
