Children’s Book Offers Lesson About Down’s Syndrome

>PRWEB.COM Newswire

MONTREAL (PRWEB) July 28, 2012

In his children’s book “Peter and Buddy the Hummingbird” (published by Trafford Publishing), Clifford Lincoln teaches young readers about a loving family and a little boy with Down’s syndrome.

While at their summer cottage by the lake, the Roberts family enjoys spending time together, developing and finding new friends. However Peter, one of the four children, is a bit different from the others. He has Down’s syndrome, and he looks and acts differently than his siblings and the other children at the lake.

An excerpt from “Peter and Buddy the Hummingbird”:

“One day, Bob, who always wonders about Peter, asked his mother: ‘What’s this Down something you always mention when you talk about Peter?’

‘It’s a kind of sickness called Down’s Syndrome. Peter was born with a brain not as strong as yours. That’s why he has trouble speaking and understanding. His brain’s slow, and he’s slower in everything he does.’”

But Peter is as happy and fulfilled as anyone else in the family. He loves the simplicity of nature and feels at peace, especially when he meets a new friend – a tiny hummingbird named Buddy. Together, Peter and Buddy show their family – and readers – that everyone has the ability to leave lasting impressions on the lives of family and friends.
