- 10+ in stock
A hugely important and sensitively handled story of sibling love and understanding disability, Me and My Sister introduces the topic of autism to young readers in an intelligent, relatable manner. Full of bold yet warm illustrations and an empowering message of acceptance, Robbins’s picture book is an invaluable resource for pre-schoolers.
This appealing brother and sister duo spend a lot of their day together, eating meals, going to school and playing. But life with an autistic sibling is not always easy.
Through the eyes of the brother, we find out how they are both very different, but also very similar in other ways, and come what may they have lots of fun together and love each other just the same.
This is a touching book that will strike a chord with every family with siblings, especially where one is differently abled.
