Gideon started 1st grade a few weeks ago and I recently just finished designing/writing a small book for each of his classmates to teach them a little about Down syndrome and how Gideon is more LIKE them than different. I was getting ready to send them off to school to be distributed by the teacher when I found scores of these brand new bendable mini sock monkeys at the thrift store for only $1.00 each. They are just perfect because they have wire inside them and you can bend them into all these crazy positions - just like my super bendy son!
So I grabbed enough for his class and made little tags that read:
You're Like Me
and I'm Like You!
You can view the book online as a flipbook http://online.flipbuilder.com/erci/xwrf/
