'Inspiring and helpful to any parent starting their child in mainstream schooling, and any teachers worried about taking the first steps.' - Pat Dolan, parent from Stockport
'This is a delightful, practical account of the integration of a young child with Down's Syndrome into a mainstream infant school. It shows how positive the experience can be for everyone involved when there is a good level of support from the education authority, school and the family. It is a powerful argument for finding the money to pay for proper support for children with special needs. When I am teaching a child with Down's Syndrome I will certainly go back to this book for ideas and advice. I am impatient to follow Hannah through the next stage of her education. Can we have the sequel please?' - Lise Bosher, Viewpoint
