I received a copy of THE PRINCE WHO WAS JUST HIMSELF by Silke Schnee from Plough Publishing House. This is a picture book illustrated by Heike Sistig. The book focuses on a prince who is born with Down Syndrome and saves his kingdom from an evil invader.
At first I wasn’t a fan of the illustrations. They are similar to what a child would do, and to me it didn’t feel professional. The more I looked at them, however, the more I realized how well that works for children. It can help them feel better about their own artwork.
The story itself was sweet and family focused. I can see it being perfect for a classroom or a home. I have passed this book onto my friend’s sister for her to share with her special education class.
