A Book Series that Supports NDSC
Sue Workman, author of the My Sister Lucy book series, will donate 100% of the proceeds of the My Sister Lucy eBook and 20% of the proceeds of the Lucy at the Zoo and Lucy’s Halloween Treasure Hunt eBooks to NDSC, NDSS and the Utah DSF in celebration of World Down Syndrome Day! “Giving back to these organizations that make such a significant difference in the lives of individuals with Down syndrome and their families is very important to me,“ said Workman. “It’s about building a community through education and acceptance and supporting organizations that offer valuable resources, information, and advocacy for people with Down syndrome.”
The My Sister Lucy series is comprised of read-aloud eBooks with music and narration. Sue Workman created these books to educate and enhance lives through the main character’s many adventures. These books are for preschoolers and young readers of any ability and promote acceptance, inclusion, and friendship while encouraging the conversation about Down syndrome. The eBooks can be purchased on MySisterLucy.com.
Sue Workman is an author, illustrator, and professional photographer. She is also a practicing physical therapist who works with children of all ages.
