Ling Moor - Up And Adam
PLEASE NOTE THIS BOOK IS A DONATION TO LING MOOR PRIMARY SCHOOL.
An uplifting story about Adam, a young boy with Down syndrome who helps his neighbors in the aftermath of a storm in a way only he can. Adam and his dog, Up, do what they can to pitch in with the cleanup. But it turns out, Adam’s most important contribution to his community is one he doesn’t even think about—his smile. Because when anyone sees Adam smile, they smile, too.
Adam having Down syndrome is not referenced in the story but is addressed in an author’s note, which includes information about Down syndrome and resources. Adam’s open-hearted and infectious smile lights the pages as he lifts spirits all over town in Yong Ling Kang’s illustrations, which thoughtfully feature details in Adam’s clothing and belongings that are sensitive to his needs.
