      Emma is not too thrilled that she will soon be getting a little brother/sister; she has been an only child for almost six years and likes it that way. But when her father describes how much fun being a big sister will be, Emma slowly warms to the idea and thinks of all kinds of fun activities she might share with her new brother or sister. But when baby brother Isaac is born with Down Syndrome, Emma is worried that her little brother will never be able to do any of the things she had planned to [...]

      This is a terrific story that helps parents talk to their children about Down Syndrome. The story shows quite plainly that children with Down Syndrome can do so many things that others can do and that we should love them and accept them for who they are. The additional information in the back helps explain what the Syndrome is, how it is caused, and answers frequently asked questions about it. I love that the sweet perspective of the big sister helps her father and together they make plans for t [...]

      This is an excellent book about welcoming a new baby with Down Syndrome into the family. Emma is excited to learn she has a new brother and tells her dad all the things she wants to do with the baby. The next day her Dad is very upset and when she asks why he tells her that baby Isaac has Down Syndrome. She questions whether he will still be able to play kickball or paint or feed the animals at the farm and each question answered positively. Her father explains that Isaac will be able to do all [...]

      This is a little more of what I look for in a children's book about Down Syndrome. A little girl knows she's getting a younger sibling, and her father lets her know the new baby has Down Syndrome. So what does she do? She asks lots and lots of questions to the tune of "Will he be able to do this?" and each time her father says, "Well yes, he'll be able to do that." The book indicates the father has been crying, and you can tell that with all the questions his daughter asks, he and his daughter r [...]

      First, I need to say that I knew a bit about this book from reading friends’ reviews and comments on reviews and in the Children's Books group; this book is one of the selections at its Picture Books Club for June’s theme of people who have physical disabilities.I thought the book would really annoy me because 1. it looked as though it was a book simply about a new sibling, until well into the book when it’s revealed the new baby has Down Syndrome, and therefore might not be the best new b [...]

      I think this book is a wonderful text, both in terms of introducing children and families to the basics of Down Syndrome as well as, separate from it's content, an excellent picture book. The pictures are brightly colored, centered on the page, and aid student understanding of the characters and plot progression. In particular, the illustrations do a nice job of subtly representing the differences in facial characteristics of children with Down Syndrome. As the story points out, children with Do [...]

      In an octopus's garden, with you.I'm not really sure what to say. It feels like it's aimed at a very specific audience, namely children who have just had a younger sibling born who has Down syndrome, which is a very small audience. I guess you could give it to a child if you were trying to explain what Down syndrome was. But basically the only thing says is what Down syndrome isn't. It doesn't say what it is.There's a little girl who's the main character, and she's got a new baby brother, and sh [...]

      A good story for older siblings of a special needs child. It's Down Syndrome in the book here, but the message is the same for any number of special needs circumstances. The older sister learns that she can plan on doing all the same things with her new brother, just that it might take a bit more patience and time. With a family member with special needs, I found it very well done, not too syrupy-sweet. Not the greatest illustrations, but that's not really the focus of the book either. The story [...]

    13. Nicole Lawson on said:

      I love that this book takes the explorative imagination of a child and gives it meaning to a real life situation. The message is helpful for not only children to understand Down's syndrome, but in some cases adults too. The illustrations do a great job of telling the story as well. The images at the beginning of the story show Emma participating in the act with her little brother nearby, however, after she learns about her brother being born with Down's syndrome, the images change and she is bei [...]

      When 6-year-old Emma's baby brother is born with Down Syndrome, she wonders what his limitations will be. Her father quickly tells her that as long as they are patient, and help him when he needs it, that he won't have any limitations at all. Answering many questions children might have about Down Syndrome, We'll Paint The Octopus Red is a sweet account of how everyone requires love and patience, no matter who they are.

      When a young girl finds out that she has a new little brother, she is upset. She quickly starts to warm up to the idea, when she thinks about what all she could do with her brother. When her father tells her that her brother has down syndrome, she is just happy to know that she will still be able to play with her brother. A great story on acceptance and normalizing special needs.

    16. Katie Carter on said:

      This is a useful tool to assist with the discussion of Down Syndrome. Many people stare because they are unaware and afraid of the unfamiliar. This is a heartwarming story that beautifully illustrates the normalcy of Down Syndrome.

      I loved this book. I was intrigued by the title, but the story hooked me and drew me in. This book is about a little girl who just had a new baby brother. She and her father imagine all the things the two siblings can do together. I loved the illustrations in this book and how detailed they were.

      Mommy's review from 10/13/11 - Believe it or not but when I happened to see this in the library (someone else had left it lying on a table) I was so oblivious I had no idea what it was about. I assumed it was the usual cutesy picture book about a brother and a sister. And it is but it's more than that too.I was actually a little shocked when I opened the book and started reading. I even hesitated more than twice in starting to read. Not that I keep anything from Julia but it happens that she's n [...]

      I was surprised that this was more than just another "a new baby is coming into our family" book. The family in this story is not only preparing their daughter for the new baby, they are starting to cope with the discovery that the new baby has Downs-Syndrome. The talk that the father has with the daughter about all the ways a new baby will change the family happened before he found out the baby had downs. When the father tries to then explain to his daughter about Downs-Syndrome she is more con [...]
