The children’s series Kids Like Me… features adorable and diverse children with Down syndrome on every page, and many of their siblings too. These chunky, sturdy books are perfect for youngsters who are ready to start learning skills like their ABCs and colors.
Kids Like Me…Learn Colors teaches primary colors, plus orange, green, purple, pink, brown, black, white, silver, gold, gray, and a multi-color rainbow. Every page features a child with Down syndrome wearing a shirt and playing with an object of the same color, photographed against a crisp, white background. Borders contain the word for English and Spanish. After all, it’s never too early to start bilingual education!
