Wonderfully Made- Wonderfully ME! is a rhyming, seek-and-find, picture book of a little boy, Ashton, born with Down syndrome who inspires and encourages others by being confident in himself and who created him.
Children and parents will have fun working together to find the hidden, yellow and blue, Down syndrome awareness butterflies on each page. Children are given the opportunity to become part of the story and who is being celebrated by personalizing pages with their picture, name, and how God made them unique. The parent's section explains 10 key ways that seek & find books can aid in cognitive and psychological development such as memory, focus, attention to detail (which is important for problem solving), listening and vocabulary skills. This section also offers speech and language therapy techniques to utilize while enjoying the book with your child.
As Ashton celebrates who he is and what sets him apart, he shows his love for God, the person God made him, and who God made others. He will encourage and inspire children of all abilities and uniqueness, as they feel an instant connection and love for him too. Children will discover that being unique is a positive gift because we all are "wonderfully made." The series is one of a kind and gives parents the opportunity to present and instill this in their children in a loving and celebratory way based on the scriptures Psalm 139:13-14 "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made."
If you have a loved one in your life with Down syndrome it is sure to touch your heart and inspire you to share it with them. The series is a great gift for new parents and their children, and for sharing awareness on Down syndrome awareness holidays such as Down syndrome awareness month (October), World Down Syndrome Day (3-21), at yearly Buddy Walks, and with schools, churches, therapists and doctors. This also makes a great welcome and/or congratulation gift for new parent baskets made possible by local and national Down syndrome associations and societies.
