Product Description

About the Author

Anne Kelleher, who has been published multiple times and translated into five languages, was inspired to write this story by her brother. The real "David" is no longer interested in children's books but is unable to read traditional adult novels. For him, and people like him, the David series will satisfy a previously unfilled need for accessible and entertaining stories.

A Very Special Story 6 Oct. 2011
By Pamela Reese - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
"How David met Sarah" is a fantastic read. Author Annie Kelleher has reached out to an under-recognized and overlooked group. She has combined the passion of a sister's heart with all her amazing gifts as a storyteller and writer. Here is a book with a thoroughly adult storyline written at grade school (3rd grade) level. It will speak to the hearts of the many developmentally delayed who have had no written voice before.
This is a powerful and important moment crafted with love and grace. I knew David almost the moment I met him on the page. I felt his excitement, shared his way of seeing his world. I found myself eagerly hoping he would meet his red-haired girl. And I was delighted to find I could--and thoroughly did--enjoy the experience.
Beyond David, Sarah, and all the many interesting and well drawn characters, readers like myself can enjoy the story itself. There is a subtle subtext that reaches out to us in the way only the most powerful children's stories can and teaches us something about ourselves and about the people inhabiting the story.
This is a breakthrough moment for the David's of this world as it reminds us once again that what we all share in common is so much more meaningful than the differences. I highly recommend we come and share this amazing journey.

Excellent Book, Excellent Premise 6 Oct. 2011
By Sara E Strecker - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
For most of us, we have never experienced life as a person with Downs Syndrome. We have not seen the world through their eyes. How David Met Sarah allows those of us to see and feel David's world; the world of a Downs Syndrome adult. The text is engaging and appropriate for someone who has experience working with those who have special needs and written in such a way that a person with learning disabilities could easily make their way through the text and relate to the story. There are few, if any, fiction books out there that are geared directly for those with Downs Syndrome. How David Met Sarah easily and perfectly fills this gap. Excellent Read!

A Homeschooling Parent and Child's Review 6 April 2012
By LazyHeifer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I think it is the responsibility of every parent to introduce their children to a wide variety of life experiences. Different people, places, cultures, ideas, etc. in the hopes that their children will become kind, loving, understanding, and tolerant adults. As a homeschool parent, it's an even greater responsibility, as my son may not come into contact with as many people as the average schooled child. We don't have any friends or family members with Down Syndrome, so I asked my son to read How David Met Sarah, hoping it would allow him to see that people who may seem different on the outside, really aren't that different on the inside.

And this is what my 12-year old son had to say about How David Met Sarah....

I really enjoyed your book. It did keep my attention and was interesting. It also improved my understanding of people with disabilities. The only thing that I saw that was different between David and any other person was that he needed a schedule and that he lived with his parents and needed their help a lot. David and most people seem to not be that different. They have the same wants and feelings and fears that we do, but usually just act a little different. I know very few people with disabilities so I can't say too much but, I have been a little nervous about what to say or if I will say the wrong thing to them. But the book helped me to understand that they aren't that different and are like normal people, so I should just talk to them like anyone else. To an everyday 7th grader its almost too easy to read, but my mom told me that it's written for a 3rd grade level.

A Great Read 9 July 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As the mother of a daughter who is on the Autism Spectrum, I loved this book. I loved how it shows the world through David's eyes, AND it shows how it affects those who love him. A great read, especially if you are a person who wants to understand the life of those who have a disability and the people who love them.
