    It's been several years since I've read this book, but it had a strong impact on me for personal reasons.My grandmother read this book when she was pregnant with my aunt and decided to name her child Dale after Dale Evans. My aunt was born with Down syndrome. I never knew her because she passed away at 10 years old (when my mom was only 4), but I was named after her and the memory of my aunt that was shared by family members is what guided me to go into special education.As a former teacher and just as a human being, I am incredibly grateful to Dale Evans and Roy Rogers for the exposure they gave to children with special needs in a time when they were so often locked away.This book honors their daughter, Robin and is told from her perspective. I only remember a few details from the book, but I remember quite clearly how beautifully Robin's story was told.

    This book is a touching book about Roy and Dale Roger's little girl that didn't live past two, but God used her life in amazing way!

    One of my very favorite books as I was growing up. My copy is the 19th printing that sold for $1.00; the dust jacket is barely attached and includes a photo of a smiling little girl in the top right corner with big eyes and blonde curls. This book has been passed down for at least three generations, and our names have all been written inside the cover. Can you imagine a book published today that would be worthy of that care?This is a sweet, sad, and joy-filled story about the daughter of Roy Rogers and Dale Evans. I cry every time I read it, yet I am drawn to read it again every few years. I am always amazed by the strength and faith of the family, and their willingness to talk about their child.

    I read this book when I was in my teens, then when I was in my thirties, I was honored to meet Dale Evans Rogers in person. It was such a privilege to talk with her and to tell her how her book had touched my heart.

    What a beautiful and sad story! The Rogers have long been favorites of our family-we even met their son, Dusty-and I felt I needed to read this story. God did AMAZING things through their daughter, how mighty He is! *There were a few bits of theology I didn't agree with here, but still an amazing story. It makes me love Dale, Roy, and their family even more.

    I don't remember the first time I read this book however it was many years ago. I have read it many time since. It is a precious story that should be told and handed down. I only hope I can have the faith Dale Evans has if I ever face the tragedies she has faced.Dale Evens Rogers is my HERO!

    The story of Roy Roger's & Dale Evan's daughter, who was born with Down syndrome. She died at the young age of 2 1/2 years old. This heart warming story is told from their little girl's point of view from Heaven. A sweet little book.

    This book offers a rare glimpse into the private lives of otherwise very public figures, Dale Evans Rogers and Roy Rogers. It tells the unique and largely unknown story of their lives of service through adoption of children in need who would have had little hope or quality of life without Dale and Roy's compassion, love, and tender care. This is also a story about one very special child with exceptional needs and a terminal condition, who came not to be served, rather as an Angel Unaware with far greater and lasting gifts for Dale and her family. The story is told through the eyes of a Down Syndrome child, yet delivered to us through the tender eyes and loving heart of a mother. It is a touching book with a profound testimony of faith, hope, and love.

It made such an impact on me, even now, 50 years later I feel tears welling up. Beautiful beautiful story of love and faith. Thanks Mom - things like this are part of your legacy~

    This book was a quick read for me-not even a day! I know this book was about Down's syndrome and that the little girl died in her 2 years. What I didn't know was that this was written by a famous woman and her husband, that it was from the daughter, Robin's, viewpoint, and that this book changed lives of others. When Dale Evans Rogers and Roy Rogers meet their baby daughter Robin for the first time in August 1950, they learned that she had Down's Syndrome. Doctors and others told them to put "the baby in a home" and " that she was better off there". Dale Evan Rogers and Roy Roger refused and decided to take home and love her for who she was with the help of their strong faith. This book give readers a insight to their lives for 2 years through Robin's eyes and what she desperately wanted, and how, even though her short life, lived to changed lives of her family and others for the better. A really amazing, touching story of love, loss and faith that everyone should read.

    This is a first-person narrative from the child's point of view but as told by the mother as she imagines it what it was like as her almost two-year old daughter reported to a Heavenly Father the impact her short time on earth had on the lives of others.Her life actually did impact many lives -- first of all her parents, the famous Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, who chose to take their downs syndrome baby home and love her rather than institutionalize her right away as they were advised.Due to their fame, they were able by their example to help other parents not be ashamed of their special needs children. The proceeds from this book went to helping the cause of handicapped children. Who can say how much this couple and this child did to change the way these children were thought of and treated.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eX2j_...

    I balled like a baby while reading this book. This is an angelic book written in the point of view of the child. It is inspiring for parents whom have a child with DS. I was continuously thanking my lucky stars that technology, education and science has improved so much that there are chances for better, healthy, long lived lives of those with DS. I'm so thankful that the norm is no longer to turn the cheek and send these loves to homes. And I am so thankful for the opportunity to read a heartfelt story as this. This book is written during a time when it was normal to send DS children to homes because there was "nothing that could be done"...so please keep this in mind when you read this. Very quick read, consumed it within the day...so much worth the time!

    Je málo kníh, ktoré by si zaslúžili titul výnimočná. Nájsť ich nie je ľahké, pretože sú niekedy také maličké, že ich prehliadneme. Ale niekedy to malé je v skutočnosti väčšie ako sa na prvý pohľad zdá. Presne ako aj v tomto prípade. Veľkosť tejto knihy spočíva v tých nádherných slovách, do ktorých bola vložená láska, ale i duša milujúcej matky. Ak si niekedy túto knižočku prečítate, tak pochopíte, že titul výnimočná si zaslúži právom.

    I read this book many years ago while I was in high school and never forgot about it-well 46 years later I own the book and cherish it.This story is about Dale Evans and Roy Rogers little girl, Robin, who was born with Downs Syndrome. She was given to her parents for only a short time but she showed us her visions and how beautiful heaven is. Even though people thought of her as handicapped,she had the foresight of a bright future. What a moving book that when read, lifts your spirits!

    A very touching story of the time that entertainers Roy Rogers and his wife, Dale Evans, had with their beautiful, handicapped daughter. It's been a very long time since I read this, but the memory that lingers most is of the awesome love that these wonderful people had for their Down's Syndrome baby, Robin, who died when she was only two years old. I remember that the experience for them was full of learning and growing and joy.

    I read this book when I was a young girl. My mother had great respect for Roy Rogers & Dale Evans (I did, too), and she had both this book and Dearest Debbie, about their adopted daughter from Korea. The deaths of both Robin and Debbie made me sad and scared at the same time. I still remember portions of both books that mentioned how the girls' dogs each whined inconsolably the nights the girls died, before word had even reached the family. Odd, the things that stay with you.

    This was a memoir of having a special needs child in the 1950s. It was very well written and at times heartbreaking. I was horrified by some of the things doctors told the family. I learned something about the family & really enjoyed the story. It also solidified my husband's belief that special needs children truly do not have the "jagoff" gene. It also showed what faith should look like.

    Fabulous wee book about Roy Rogers and Dale Evans (both I adored as a child) wee daughter, Robin and her short time on earth, written through her eyes.I was surprised and awed at Roy Rogers and Dale Evans' faith and did not realise they were committed Christians. Would most definitely recommend book and would read again. Xo

    A touching story, told from the perspective of the child of Roy and Dale Evans Rogers. I can't help but relate it to our own lives, and am so grateful for the advances in medical care in the last 50-60 years. For those of us who believe in God, we can only aspire to have the kind of faith that the Rogers family had.

    This is a book from the early 1960s, but it is hard to underscore the societal impact it had: for the first time Americans spoke of Down Syndrome children and adults who were kept at home. Dale evans assigned value to them and told people to take them along on outings and keep them in the family circle as contributing and viable members of society

    An amazing book! I read it when I was in my teens and read it again recently. The story is about the special child sent to Dale Evans and Roy Rogers. It is told by their daughter as she resides in heaven. It will tug on the heart but makes you smile in the end when you realize that there are truly angels unaware (Hebrews 13:2).

    I read this book when I was a young girl who was a devout Christian. Though I am no longer young or religious, I still remember how much this book meant to me. I give it five stars for that little girl of long ago. It wouldn't be my choice now, but then, it was very meaningful to me.

    "And a little child shall lead them", and she did! This story is told from the perspective of a baby who died. She tells the story from Heaven. I liked the way this story was written. It certainly grabs you and pulls you in. This one will break you heart!

    I loved this book as Roy Rogers and Dale Evans met with some very difficult losses, but never shunned their faith. I wonder if they are the first/last decent couple to ever exist in Hollywood? A short intimate book by Dale Evans Roger.

    This is a beautiful story written by Dale Evans for her Down Syndrome baby as though the baby were telling the story. It is a short read and a book you will want to keep in your library. FYI You will need a box of tissue for this one.

    The first "grown up" book I recall reading. I think I was in 4th or 5th grade. I read it again a few years later and plan on reading it again this Ed, some 30 years later.Little did I know then the (2nd) career path life would send me down ... Maybe this book was that first "seed"?
