 Can I tell you about Down Syndrome?

Elizabeth Elliott, illustrated by Manjit Thapp

'This book is a breath of fresh air! Written in the first person and accompanied by beautiful illustrations, this book is accessible, factual, yet warm and personal, a testament to the love and commitment of Elizabeth's family. The book is easy to digest and packed with myth-busting information. Elizabeth has created a shining light of positivity that will be cherished by many, and will spark important conversations about Down Syndrome today.'

- Hayley Goleniowska, Downs Side Up, blogger, author, speaker and advocate

'Dr Elliott has written a very accessible and informative book, which will help parents, children, teachers and other professionals understand more about what it is like to have Down's syndrome. Down's syndrome is a relatively common condition and it is important for people to be well-informed in this area. In simple language, this book helps the reader understand things from the perspective of the individual concerned, and in this sense particularly, it is a very useful addition to the literature in this field.'
