This book tells of a grandmother's reaction to the birth and ongoing life of a down syndrome boy. I bought it in the expectation of learning something useful about another person's view of this syndrome. I was very disappointed as the book was very slight, ill written, and I learnt nothing of the little boy himself. His fears and pleasures and his joy or sadness in life were not touched on. I admire the grandmother's desire to share her experiences but for me they were too closely focused on herself . Basically when you could forgive the poor writing , the book was dull. I also have a grandson with the same syndrome and I learnt nothing new here.
As a brother and a father to someone with Down Syndrome I am biased about these people-this book is an enjoyable read about the journey of acceptance-
