Lots of socks with Sally
For World Down Syndrome Day today, Mandy and Kate chat to Sally, Pea mum to Jana, a little girl with Down Syndrome, and author of Jana’s Brightly Coloured Socks.
Sally talks about her life with Jana, a happy little girl who is currently in her first year of school. Sally was inspired to write her book after reading another book about Down Syndrome to Jana's classmates. She found the children to be so receptive, open and accepting that she went home and wrote a new story about Jana, featuring themes of kindness, inclusivity, friendship, celebration and socks! She then partnered up with illustrator Alexis Schnitger, who also has a child with Down Syndrome, to self-publish her gorgeous picture book. The book’s ‘sock’ theme also connects with the World Down Syndrome Day ‘Lots of Socks’ campaign that aims to raise awareness about the condition.
Aussie Peas, Sally is running a giveaway to win a signed copy of the hardback, signed by the author and illustrator, plus a little bag of goodies!
