From Library Journal:

When they are told that their baby has Down Syndrome, most parents react with shock and need help coping with this unexpected situation. Veteran researcher Cunningham aims to provide such help in the form of detailed information about the physical, mental, and social characteristics of Down Syndrome children. Along with that information comes encouragement and hope as Cunningham shows that there is much that parents and others can do to help a Down Syndrome child develop to his or her full potential. This is the third edition of a book first published in Britain, revised for the American audience. Highly recommended for public libraries that don't have a previous edition.?John Moryl, Yeshiva Univ. Lib., New York

Review:

...a wonderfully comprehensive and well organized piece of work for parents of babies and young children. The author provides answers to the countless questions directed to him during his twenty years' involvement with Down Syndrome individuals and their families. He is both sensitive and positive in his presentation. An excellent 'first' book for new parents. -- Down Syndrome News
