Book Review: Not Even the SKY is the LIMIT!

“The stories I love doing the most are the ones that empower those who may not otherwise have a voice—especially those who live in poverty or who are disabled.”

Publisher: Halo Publishing, Int.
ISBN: 978-1-61244-199-3 (hard cover)

About the Book:
Not Even The SKY Is The LIMIT, is a book showcasing the abilities of children and adults with Down Syndrome. The book is the result of the author’s own beautiful journey to find out what life with her daughter would be like. Turn the pages and you’ll see that people with Down Syndrome are able to enjoy doing everything everyone else does. In fact, as you see here, not even the sky is the limit!

Not Even The SKY Is The LIMIT, is inspired by the authors daughter Gianna, who has Down Syndrome. The book is also meant for adults, who will clearly see by turning the pages that there are no limits to what those living with disabilities can do.

Overall Thoughts:
This isn't your typical picture book with a story, main character and whimsy style of writing. Zarrella instead shows young readers that no matter who you are or where you come from, you can do anything if you can dream. With vivid photos of children to adults with Down Syndrome this message is handed to all who flip the pages of this book. 

For those looking for a colorful concept book to help teach basic reading skills to kids or just to open early conversations with their young readers, you won't be disappointed with this book. Kids will learn sports to art. You can even use the colorful backgrounds to teach colors as well as show young children they can do anything.

A portion of the proceeds from the book will be donated to organizations that improve the lives of people who live with Down Syndrome.
