This book was written and the pictures were drawn by a 6-year-old girl named Amanda who explains what it is like to have a special needs sibling. Amanda's 11-year-old brother Michael has autism and is unable to talk. From a child's perspective you will feel and understand the challenges and love she has for her brother. This book was written for all children and adults to help them learn about autism. Most of all we hope this book helps children who have a special needs relative or friend so they do not feel alone.
You can Purchase the Book on Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble .com.
Finally a book for siblings! So well written and wonderfully illustrated! Amanda's words were beautiful and truly from the heart. The book resounded with her love for her brother, but didn't overlook the challenges for the whole family. It's a perfect book for children preschool aged and up. I bought a few copies for my school and will be sharing it with pediatricians, educators, and just about everyone I know!
