It’s time for young Prince Noah to go to school. The prince, who starred in the book The Prince Who Was Just Himself, may be a little slower than other students, but he has no less joy in learning. In his kingdom, children go to school on sailing ships. There is a ship for girls and one for boys. There is a ship for children with an eye patch, a ship for children with one leg, and a ship for children who are slower learners. No one knows why there are so many different ships, but it has always been that way.

Then a terrible storm drives the ships into the hands of pirates. The boys and girls realize that they will only escape if everyone does what he or she does best. Through their adventures, they learn that diversity makes us strong and that every person has something to teach us.  AMAZON 4.5 STARS

This delightfully illustrated fairy tale instills appreciation for children with Down syndrome and other developmental challenges, making it a valuable aid for teaching tolerance in the home or classroom.

What a lovely book. I was going to say what a lovely "little" book, but the actual size of the book is on the larger size.  If you check the Amazon Information page you will see that the size is, 8.5 x 0.3 x 11 inches. 
That made for larger pictures being able to be a part of the book, which I think would be attractive to the children. The adventure is easy to follow and a fun element to the story.  All the children having value, and being able to do so much more than expected was done in a good way.  As was the final part of all the children working together to overcome the problems that came up. 
I wish that there would have been books like this when my children were little but I'm glad to see more of them becoming available now.   
I'm keeping this book until I either give it as a gift or donate it to a place where it will reach the most children.
It's a valuable resource. 

I received a copy of this book via Handlebar,  released by Plough Publishing, in exchange for an honest review.
