The Little King and His Marshmallow Kingdom Review and Giveaway-CLOSED!


As a parent it is very important to teach your little one to respect each other and treat everyone like you would like to be treated, even if they are different. I had the opportunity to review this amazing book called "The Little King and His 
Marshmallow Kingdom" by Louis Rotella III.  This book is about a wonderful, smart and funny little eight year old boy called Louie. He was born with Down Syndrome, but that does not stop him from playing and enjoying life with the love and support of his parents and family. 


The minute I received the book, Sophia and I were having a tea-party. So we decided to read it right then. I opened the book and she was immediately fascinated with the The Little King's crown. She told me to stop reading, so she could wear her princess crown as well. Once she had it on, I continued with the story. It is wonderfully, well-written with large colorful images for any child to adore. Sophia loves the part where the The Little King was blowing bubbles and swinging on the tire swing. She even said, "I did that at the park too." 



“No kid is exactly alike. But we’re all kids. Right?”


Just like the words, not everyone is the same. We play and have fun just like everyone, but in our own special way.    
"The Little King and His Marshmallow Kingdom" was written to give parents, their children and instructors the ability to access some of the lessons and joy Louie brings into  every person he meets. This is an incredible book for everyone to read. It brought back a lot of my childhood memories of my friend Ellen, who also had Down Syndrome. Yet, she was the sweetest, lovable little girl who behaved and enjoyed life like everyone else.  The book is available at amazon.com 

WIN: One lucky Show Me Mama reader will receive a copy of " The Little King and His Marshmallow Kingdom"!
