Reviewer: Allison Martin

Brothers and Sisters by Laura Dwight is a heartwarming children's picture book about children with special needs and disabilities, written from the point of view of their siblings. A lovely display of high quality photographs is the main feature of each story, showing brothers and sisters happily interacting together, as they play and go about their normal day together.

Informative and upbeat, this exceptional children's picture book stars children with Congenital Amputation (missing a limb), Asperger's Syndrome, Blindness, Down Syndrome, Deafness, and Cerebral Palsy. A bit of helpful information is presented on each child by their siblings, describing how the disability affects them and their family. These introductions are presented with affection, emphasizing the special siblings' abilities and ways in which they or their unaffected siblings overcome problems.

Brothers and Sisters by Laura Dwight is a great book for children from preschool and to late elementary age. (My fifth grade daughter read through this book with great enthusiasm, exclaiming happily at the family pictures.) Brothers and Sisters is a wonderful resource for siblings of special needs children, or other children who interact with special populations. I highly recommend this special needs children's book for libraries, schools, doctors, therapists, or home.
