The Polka-Dotted Penguin by Dr. Amy Moy

Dr. Moy

Amy Roan Moy, OD, FAAO, CPCO, was inspired to become a children’s book author by her seven-year-old daughter, who has Down Syndrome. Dr. Moy wanted to write a book about kindness and inclusion to help children to understand that differences are OK and, actually, pretty great. Her message is told through the story of Dottie in The Polka-Dotted Penguin, who starts her journey in the beginning of the story as a little polka-dotted egg that is different from all the other eggs.

Find the book on Amazon below or get an autographed copy from her Etsy shop.
