Local Author Jordan Burk Releases Inclusive Children’s Book

It was inspired by his family

Twenty-nine-year-old Dallasite Jordan Burk grew up caring for his uncle Kelly, who had Down syndrome. After seeing that many schools and parents were not teaching children about the needs of people like his uncle, Burk began a children’s book series designed to educate kids through inclusive storytelling. On kellyandkelso.com, you and your little can find printable games and coloring pages, T-shirts and Kelly and the Great Pinewood Derby, the first book in Burk’s series. He’ll be at the Notre Dame School in Dallas on May 7 and Half Price Books in Dallas on June 23; check the website for more local events as they’re announced.
