Joey Moss became known to many Canadians because of his work with the NHL Edmonton Oilers hockey team. Joey loved making people feel good. But his impact and influence started long before he joined the Oilers and went beyond the hockey world. Joey was born with Down syndrome at a time when many children like him were institutionalized. Instead, Joey lived at home, surrounded by his supportive family who was determined that he should receive the same opportunities as others. From this loving environment grew a caring, energetic man who went on to show the world that people like him could do many things and contribute greatly to society. The inspiring true story of Joey Moss comes alive in this heartwarming picture book for young readers.
