KUSA - A Denver mother, business woman and author stopped by the 9NEWS studio with her 9-year-old son Guion, who was born with Down syndrome, to talk about the fictional children's book: "Guion The Lion: A Colorful World."

Rebecca Macsovits discussed the inspiration behind the book and what the author hopes to accomplish. Once we look past a person's appearances, a full world of possibilities open up.

The book's proceeds for the month of December will benefit the Rocky Mountain Down Syndrome Association, a group that provides critical support to families and caretakers of individuals with Down syndrome throughout the Rocky Mountain region.
