"The Prince who was Just Himself" is written by Silke Schnee and illustrated by Heike Sistig. This is a children's story of Prince Noah's introduction to his royal family. Noah is a bit different. That's ok with some and not with others. But he is full of love, wonder, and patience. Prince Noah has Down's Syndrome. When the kingdom is attacked by Scarface, Noah brings the villain to his knees by showing him love and compassion.
This book is aimed at children, but as a read-to. I really loved this book! I feel it should be in every child's library. It not only explains Down's Syndrome to a child in a way that can be understood, but also teaches tolerance as well. The illustrations are wonderful and cheerful. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Handlebar Publishing.
