Wonderfully Made Wonderfully ME! Coloring & Activity Book is a fun and therapeutic extension of the original book, Wonderfully Made Wonderfully ME! Seek & Find Storybook.
Coloring pages are the answer key to the seek and find butterflies in the original book. Children and parents will have fun working together comparing the two books to see if they found all of the hidden Down syndrome awareness butterflies from the original book! The parent section explains ten key components of how coloring aids in cognitive, physical, and psychological development, and gives tips on how to achieve these benefits. It also offers physical and speech therapy techniques such as the hand- over -hand method great for teaching motor skills such as coloring and self feeding. Children are given the opportunity to become part of the story and be celebrated by personalizing pages with their picture, name, express themselves through creativity, and much more.
The Coloring & Activity Book gives another opportunity to enjoy and share the rhyming story of a little boy, Ashton, born with Down syndrome, who inspires and encourages others by being confident in himself and who created him. As he 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, and 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.
