Book Review: The Prince Who Was Just Himself ~ by Silke Schnee

The Prince Who Was Just Himself is a much-needed book in today's society. An endearing fairy tale-style story is wrapped around the sweetest little boy and his family. The young prince has a heart of gold and takes nothing for granted. He takes his time enjoying the beauty in life around him and reminds his royal family that life is something precious. His IS the gift of life and love, demonstrating how he impacts individuals in beautiful ways.

Written by Sile Schnee, a journalist and mother of three sons, the youngest of whom has Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome). She wrote this book to show the world that the news of having a child with Down syndrome isn't something to feel shocked or sad about, but rather to realize that life is to be celebrated no matter what because ALL life is precious. Their little prince, Noah, and many more children like him bring such love and joy into the lives of others.

Our children have asked me to read this book to them and also to read by themselves several times since it arrived from Plough Publishing as a review book. We have all enjoyed it and encourage others to read it as well. It's also a great way to have further discussions with your children and encourage them to see others as Jesus sees them.
