The Prince Who Was Just Hinself – Book Review
When you think about the types of values and positive messages you want to instill in your children, what comes to mind?
Teaching your children to embrace those who are different and to look for the gifts that make them special?
Overcoming conflict with compassion and love?
If so, I highly recommend Silke Schrnee’s charming story, The Prince Who Was Just Himself, to you!
Filled with the beautiful illustrations of Hekie Sistig, The Prince Who Was Just Himself tells the story of a royal couple who decide to have their third child.
Prince Noah is born – but when he is born with Down syndrome (which is never explicitly stated in the story, only hinted at by the illustrations and descriptions) – not everyone in the kingdom is as welcoming as the royal couple would hope.
One day the kingdom comes under attack by a terrible knight named Scarface. All of the king’s warriors ride out to do battle – but, in the end, it is Prince Noah who saves them all by disarming the knight with an unprecedented act of kindness.
The Prince Who Was Just Himself is a heartwarming children’s story that will help children see how special people with Down syndrome and other physical disabilities really are.
I really enjoyed the story and believe that you will too!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

At first when Noah was born, we were shocked and sad. The catalyst for this book was witnessing the effect he had on many people, despite being categorized as disabled. In fact, our little prince brings much love, joy, and sunshine not only to us, but to all around him. Children are a wonder, and we must see them with the eyes of our heart: each child just the way he or she is.
