Lou and Louie

Lou and Louie

“The Little King” is about my wise and funny sage (and son), eight-year-old Louie Rotella the IV, who was born with Down Syndrome. I wrote this book because I wanted to give children—and their parents and teachers—access to some of the lessons, and all of the laughter, that Louie brings into my life and that of everyone he meets.

My family did some shopping today at Target. When we returned to the car, there was a copy of this book on our windshield. Apparently, Mrs Rotella III, saw us get out of the car with our four year old twins, one of which, our daughter Kayleigh has down syndrome. I wanted to thank you and your family for the kindness displayed today. It always renews my faith in humanity when I see random acts such as this. The twins are excited to hear the story at bedtime tonight.

In trying to find a book to explain to my nephews that their cousin (my 9 month old son) has Down Syndrome, your book was recommended to me. Thank you for making a book that children and adults alike can enjoy. I am picking up a copy this week and can’t wait to read it!

Thank you….a mother of a loving 9 month old boy with Down Syndrome
