Marianne Marts is the youngest of six children and the only girl. She is a special education teacher & advocate by trade and a sister by heart! Being Joey’s guardian isn’t always easy but most often it is a blessing. Many life lessons and much joy have come from being Joey’s guardian. For many years Marianne has envisioned a series of books and resources to help communities and families understand the needs of people with disabilities.

Marianne does a great job of putting a real face on what it's like to live with a family member with Down Syndrome, with all the challenges and joys that entails. "Will You Be My Friend" is a book for all ages, but is especially worthwhile for those wishing to teach their children or students the value of all people, especially those who may be a little different than we are. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the books in this series!

I love this book! The Author really captured the true essence of the character's life. I am confident that this book, with the lesson curriculum at the end, will help me teach others understanding, tolerance and how important friendships are to all people, irregardless of their "abilities".
