Description:

The Little King and His Marshmallow Kingdom is a wonderful story about a child with Down Syndrome, Louie IV, who loves to use his imagination to rule over the magical Marshmallow Kingdom where it is always sunny and full of marshmallow-filled desserts. But he also loves to do kid stuff like: play games and sports, help his dad with yard work, listen to music- (and make it), get into mischief, and help his friends! Most of all, he loves his family, and likes to show everyone that it is good to be unique and different, even though unique can mean many different things.

Review:

The Little King and His Marshmallow Kingdom is an adorable and encouraging book about embracing our differences and celebrating uniqueness! I really love the story of Louie IV and his imaginative adventures as well as his hobbies! The illustrations, by Mark Chickinelli, are colorful and very life-like, entertaining and stimulating the minds of children and adults alike, especially the one on the cover which my nephew seemed to enjoy, (what child doesn't want to use their imagination to be a king or queen?). I also liked the variation in shades from b&w to the colors of the rainbow; great pencil/ink sketches. The message is universal - celebrating and accepting the unique and different, and Louis Rotella III has done an amazing job with this wonderful children's book. Highly recommended for all children, and the people who read to them.

Rating: Clean Getaway (5/5)

I bought this book to read to my daughter's 1st grade class for World Down Syndrome Day. After reading it to my kids at home, my son who is in pre-k asked if I would read it to his class as well. They fell in love with King Louie since they too are practically perfect in every way. ;) It was perfect for both classes to talk about Down syndrome and even though some kids might be a little different - and we're ALL different in some way or another - we're all just kids... and that's what matters. King Louie was a hit with both classes... though next year I may bring a bag of marshmallows to pass around after the story. :)

"The Little King and His Marshmallow Kingdom" is a heartwarming story about a boy-king named Louie whose father, grandfather, and great- grandfather are also named Louie. The Marshmallow King is therefore Louie the IV, an incredibly imaginative boy who loves to play games inside and out, play rock and roll, and help his grandfather with chores. Louie is not perfect, but he tries very hard. Sometimes his mischievous side wins out, and unexpected things astound (or possibly upset) his mom. Usually in King Louie's family, they work things out with a smooch. One thing about Louie that may be different from other children is he has Down's syndrome, something he was born with, like freckles or red hair, that makes him unique. Some things may take longer for Louie to learn to do or play, but with extra help, he can accomplish many useful things. So although there is no cure for Down's syndrome, Louie and other children like him can still lead full, rich and happy lives, teaching others to celebrate the wonder of being alive. With its vibrant, descriptive illustrations, "The Little King and His Marshmallow Kingdom" is a joyous affirmation that speaks to children and adults about the value of celebrating diversity.

The Little King is beautifully illustrated picture book for young readers. It presents Louie IV as well -rounded child, full of mischief, imagination and fun. It shows how other children may have questions about Down syndrome and allows them to ask without fear. The afterward gives parents an inside look into the author's experience as a parent and adds a great deal to the overall strength of the book.

This book is a "must read" for anyone who knows someone with Down Syndrome. What a heartwarming account and an inspiring read for both young and old. The book is well written and can serve as food for thought or discussion with all ages.
