YOU are My Hero! is the second volume in the Joey’s Ups with Downs Series talking about Joey’s life experiences having Down Syndrome. YOU are My Hero! was inspired by God, unemployment, bully awareness passion, my husband Karl and my oldest brother Joey Solinsky. This book brought freedom and healing and reminded me of all that Joey has influenced in my life and of those around him and made me who I am today. Let this everyday Hero story impact you today! Each page includes an interactive question to discuss what attributes make an everyday hero that we all naturally have. Also included are classroom application pages.
