"Drop the Puck, It's Hockey Season," an early reader chapter book released Memorial Day 2015 tells the story of two brothers, Blaine and Cullen. On and off the ice they have deep love for the game and each other! Cullen is the all-star team captain and his brother Blaine is the team manager. Not just another children's book about hockey, it is a book that is modernizing children's literature. In this book Blaine, who has Down syndrome, is clearly the unsung hero of the team. Blaine's leadership and unselfish actions speak louder than any textual words. Young readers are able to learn respect and a better understanding for the challenges individuals with special needs face on a daily basis.
