Sam's Top Secret Journal

A Middle Grade mystery book in which the main character has Down syndrome?

Yes, please!

That's exactly what you'll find in Sam's Top Secret Journal - a 3-book series. (We SpySam's Secret Island and Memorial Day).

Sam, who has Down syndrome, is sometimes "bullied for the differences kids perceive in her." But the main story is how Sam and her brother "embark on their first big adventure...full of fun, suspense, and spying." 

The author (Sean Adelman) has a daughter with Down syndrome and the things Sam does in the books are based on his own daughter's abilities.

I'm not aware of any other fictional book in which the main character has Down syndrome - especially for Middle Grade books, so this is a much-needed book series.

I think Kayla will find this series under the tree this Christmas and it will be fun to read it with her and talking about how Sam also has Down syndrome - a character she can identify with!

This March I had a great time looking at Dev's "What you see in me".

And yay for mysteries.

The Sam series is brilliant.

And did you see the hi-interest low-level reading in Woodbine Press for the 40 books which are off?
