Review from Keeping Up with Down Syndrome NSW

Victoria Goes to Brazil (by Maria de Fatima Campos, Frances Lincoln Children's Books, UK, 2009) is a picture book that tells another story of Victoria, a young girl with Down syndrome (seen in an earlier book, Victoria's Day - about her life at pre-school). She travels to Brazil to visit her mother's birthplace and family. Down syndrome is never mentioned except as a small note at the back of the book. It is a beautiful book about Brazil and meeting family. It would be great in school or public libraries (as well as for children with Down syndrome) as it portrays a person with Down syndrome doing just what any other child would do. Victoria's mother (the author) is a photographer and has a website that includes more about Victoria as well as a story, Victoria and Me, done for the Down's Syndrome Association in the UK about Victoria's first three years and about Down syndrome.
