The book High Fives and A Big Heart is about Jeffrey who has Down Syndrome, but that makes no difference to anyone at his school or in his life. They know that is just a small part of what makes Jeffrey who he is, especially when compared to his kind heart and generous high fives!
On March 5, 2012 Jeffery and his friends (6 former 4th grade classmates), 3 former 4th grade teachers, his parents ~ Jane and Mike Bill, and Mikayla’s Voice executive director, Kimberly Resh, presented the book Jeffery and his classmates wrote and illustrated to the Alexandria Township Education Foundation.
Entitled High Fives and A Big Heart. The Foundation has agreed to grant $10,000 towards the publishing of the children’s book written at Alexandria Middle School in Pittstown, NJ. Thanks to this very generous donation and $5,000 in additional funding raised by Jeffrey’s family and friends, High Fives and A Big Heart will be published this summer.
