Jana's Brightly Coloured Socks is a children's picture book by Sally Fetouh with illustrations by Alexis Schnitger. It tells the story of Jana, a young girl with Down syndrome, who wakes up with a happy song and a big laugh every day. One morning, she wakes up excited to show off her new brightly colored socks. She has just learned to put on her socks all by herself, and her parents have bought her a drawer full of colorful socks. Jana's friends at school are always kind and patient with her, and she decides to share a pair of socks with each of them. The children enjoy wearing their colorful socks so much that they choose to have a school sock parade. On the day of the parade, her friends present her with a wonderful present for her kindness.
Sally Fetouh’s Jana's Brightly Coloured Socks is a heartwarming children's picture book emphasizing the importance of kindness and inclusion. The cheerful text and playful illustrations bring the story to life, making it fun and engaging for children. The story is beautifully written with a positive and upbeat tone, making it a joy to read. Fetouh's simple language and vivid imagery make it accessible to children of all ages. At the same time, including a character with Down syndrome helps to promote understanding and acceptance of disabilities among young readers. With characters from diverse ethnicities, abilities, and personalities, the story reinforces the message of celebrating differences.
