Kids Like Me…Learn ColorsThese two charming board books, illustrated with photos of children with Down syndrome, provide a fun, colorful way for any child, including a child with a developmental disability, to learn colors and the alphabet. “Learn Colors,” in English en Espanol, uses photos and geometric shapes to teach colors. Each page of “Learn ABCs” has the letter, in upper and lower case, a photo of a child, a drawing of word that begins with the letter, and the word written across the bottom of the page. Each page also shows the hand position for the letter in American Sign Language.
