All about My Brother: An Eight-Year-Old Sister's Introduction to Her Brother Who Has Autism
AAPC Publishing, 2002 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 27 pages
This is an invaluable contribution to helping typically developing children understand that a child with autism is a child first, and is someone interesting to know. Sarah gives insight into the sibling relationship in a way only a child would know. The book is heart-warming and introspective, with a writing style that makes it appropriate for children and adults alike.

This book is great for children Kindergarten to Third or Fourth grade. It familiarizes children with children with disabilities, in this case autism. Teaches that kids with disabilities are just like them. Also great to show kids that they can write their own books just like Sarah. Read full review
This book I have taken to my sons school. The teachers at this particular school are very under-educated in mental issues, as a result my son got excluded from school events and activities. The school was teaching the children to exclude him and by doing so he often got bullied. This book really opened some childrens hearts to my son and I appreciate that immensely.
