Another book to help school-age children understand Down syndrome has arrived in the library this week--Taking Down Syndrome to School by Jenna Glatzer, illustrated by Tom Dineen (JayJo Books 2002). The pictures are a bit cartoonish and it seems to dwell a bit too much on differences that may not always apply, but it covers some useful material as well. It talks about the use of the word "retard" and gives tips for teachers as well as a question and answer section for children.
