I am a mother who wanted to create orginal stories for my son David. I realized early on that my stories could be funny as well as a learning tool for him. While in the process of creating stories I was inspired to write a series of children books based on my nephew Nathan. Nathan has Down's syndrome; and MR ; however my books focus on his imagination rather than his disability. My book celebrates that every person is unique with something special to offer. My vision is that my series of books recurrent theme of inclusiveness, tolerance and appreciation for all will broaden the world's view towards anyone that may seem different and manifest into A WORLD VISION !

Often times books involving children disabilities focus on that disability. When I began to write and illustrated children book my focus was on the child and not the disability. My greatest reward would be a smile on a child face when they read one of my series of book and when they see Nathan and then they see themselves and for a minute forget about their

What are some of the questions you'd like to explore, or conversations you'd like to have with others in this community?
Nathan is my nephew and when I take him to the mall or to playgrounds kids look at him like he is different and they laugh at him. The acceptance start in (school) as early as Pre-k. Teaching kids that kid with disability or the same . They have the same feeling and just like other kids they just want to have fun. . I would like to see more children books that focus on the child not the disability. And I might add the teaching starts at home with the parents , church and the community . Teach your child not to make fun of any child that may seem different. Because guess what ..... THEY HAVE FEELING TO !!!!!!!
