Publisher's Synopsis

Cheerful text and whimsical illustrations bring alive this heartwarming story of kindness and inclusion featuring a character with Down syndrome.

Jana has just learned how to put her socks on all by herself.

Jana also happens to have Down syndrome.

To celebrate her new skill, she gets loads of brightly coloured socks as a gift.

What happens when Jana shows them to everyone at school?

Join Jana on a fun-filled journey as she discovers what it means to be a true friend and the real value of kindness.

This is a heart-warming and beautifully illustrated book that celebrates friendship and inclusion. It encourages children to embrace the differences and similarities within us.

Author Sally Fetouh was inspired to write this touching story by her own daughter who has Down syndrome, feeling it was important for her and other children like her to be able to see themselves in literature. After reading a different story about a girl with Down syndrome to her daughter's preschool class, Sally says, "The children were so engaged in the story and asked questions. They were very accepting and loving of their friend-my daughter. I left with a heart overflowing with emotion and that inspired me to write my story."

Socks were deliberately chosen in this story to reference the extra chromosome in Down syndrome. Chromosomes are shaped like socks. Even though we all have chromosomes that make us who we are, we are still all remarkably unique.
