Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Lisa is a mother and a grandmother, and former licensed therapeutic foster parent, who spent years reading to the children in her life. Over these decades, She has not seen a children's book that deals with the issue of the way society sees and treats people with Down Syndrome. As a mother of a 21-year old daughter with Down Syndrome, she feels compelled to tell her story. Lisa, her husband of 33 years and her daughter live in a quiet neighborhood in Florida. They enjoy spending time together with friends and family. Often times this quiet life is interrupted by the harsh reality of how people react to the way their daughter looks rather than the way she is.

More About the Author

Visit my website at www.itsoksmile.com to learn more. I am a mother, grandmother and a former licensed therapeutic foster parent, who spent many years reading to the children in my life. I have not come across a children's book that deals with the way society sees and treats people with Down Syndrome. As a mother of a 22 year old daughter with Down Syndrome, I felt compelled to tell Lynn's story.

This story is about the life of a child with Down Syndrome that wants to be your friend. Lynn may look different than most children, but she has many of the same likes and dislikes. She struggles with the way society sees and treats her based on the way she looks, rather than who she is.

With Lynn's story, I hope people will discover what it means to accept and embrace a relationship with people who are different.

I am available and eager to participate in any Children's Book Reading programs as well as speaking opportunities for parents, support groups, churches, daycare facilities, libraries, schools, etc. It is through programs such as these that we can educate our children and their families.

This book is so sweet and simple.... Perfect for the intended audience. And the illustrations nicely compliment the message. A wonderful little book with big impact! A gift to whoever reads it, or has it read to them, and takes it to heart.

It's about time we start having books for children to help them understand the differences in people. It's important for them to understand God made us all the same on the inside of our hearts and we should treat each other with love and respect no matter what no matter how we look on the outside. Wonderful book for all ages.Highly recommend it!!!!

What a wonderful book written for children but actually a good lesson for all of us. Get this book and read it with your children and grandchildren to help them realize that a person with Down's Syndrome is just like them in many ways!!
