Everyone’s story is important, and as diversity and inclusion become more to the forefront of society’s consciousness, we’re starting to see that reflected in books, movies and the media in general. Although there’s definitely a long way to go, this is something we, of course, welcome!
This week is National Storytelling week, and we thought we’d pull together a list of books where the main character has Down Syndrome.
We haven’t read all these books ourselves, but if you have or do, then we’d love to know if you have reviews to share!
