The Prince Who Was Just Himself {Win It}

There are few well written books to expose the idea of disabilities or differences to children of children in a positive light. And not as many that are meant for a huge age range.

This is a book that I really appreciate because it truly is for everyone.

You can read it independently of the reason behind it without knowing or your child knowing that the reason for the book is to educate people on down syndrome. It is written that well. As an adult, you will be able to tell where it introduces the idea of a child that is different, and your child might as well, but none that will make it so overt.  

I appreciate that it doesn't show the differences by pointing them out as a sore thumb or doing it in a way that you feel you are sitting in a pyschology class. Not in the way that other books I have seen do. For someone with learning disabilities or down syndrome, this is very important.

Imagine having down syndrome or other disability and how you would want a book written about you. This is as good as it gets because it makes everyone feel not just acknowledged, validated (for those who have experienced finger pointing), humbly introduced to how differences can be a great thing.

The way they promote it with their motto for the book is "It's a good thing everyone is different."

Book Description:
"The royal couple is looking forward to their third child. "He looks a little different," muses the king at Prince Noah's Arrival. "He is not like the others," agrees the queen. Soon they notice what a very special person he is, even though he can't do everything his brothers can.

When Prince Noah disarms the cruel knight Scarface with an act of compassion, everyone finally realises how good it is that each person is unique."

The characters are based off the author herself. Her son, Noah, was born with Down Syndrome and something that has put him apart from the others is that he is a very compassionate person himself. So the characters in the book are based very much on real people in the author's life.

Maybe that is in part why it is written so well.

This is a book that you can gift to someone.  I will be gifting these to my son for his birthday. I know he is going to love them! You can also use it in a classroom. You can read to your kids simply as a fairy tale or you can help teach them that being different or those that are different are just as important.

I have read several books on disabilities meant for kids and this is by far the most gentle well done book that you can gift to anyone!
