   My Brother Sawyer
She LOVES the book and has probably read it 10 times since receiving it as an early Christmas present last week! She said that Charlie is just like my brother Sawyer! She even had to read it to her grandparents when she visited that week. She loves that she can identify so well with Carlie in the story and says that this is one of her new favorites. Holly Robinson-Peete and Ryan Elizabeth Peete thank you for writing this beautifully touching story.

   wonderful conversation starter piece
This book served as a gateway for us to discuss our 6 year old daughter's autism with her 4 year old sister. It helped with the themes of why we leave certain functions early or why we can not go to some places. It even touches the subject of unfriendly playing skills. I wish there could be a mini series of books like this that touched each of the sensitive themes in more depth while still catering to the level of young children, such as why the reprimand process is not the same and how to get through the meltdowns. It is wonderful!

   Can't read without crying.
I purchased this book to help our nonverbal autistic children to understand our other son a little better. The first time I saw it, I bawled my eyes out. It's SO GOOD! I tried it several times to read it to the kids, but I am not able to make it through it without crying. This book is perfect for explaining autism to children. Highly Recommended '', highly recommended!

   Beautiful and what we needed!
I bought this to help explain my 4 year old son's autism diagnosis to my 8 year old daughter. This breaks it for a child beautifully. I couldn t find the right words and this story nailed it. It gives a good picture of both the good and challenging parts of being a sibling of someone with autism.

   My kids (ages 2, 3, and 6) were all engaged with the story and illustrations.
I received this book to address a few things in my family. First, I want my kids to see and relate more often with kids from different ethnic backgrounds. Pre-lockdowns we spent regularly with families of a variety of backgrounds. The boy in this book has autism. My middle child is soon 4, and he speaks hardly. He may be somewhere on the spectrum and we will sort this out in time. This book hits me in the gut with how beautiful it is and how relatable the love is.

   An autistic brother says "I love you" in special ways
Charlie's twin brother Callie is like her in so many ways and different in so many others. If you have autistic siblings learning to get along and appreciate each other, or classmates adapting to each other, the challenges are likely magnified if one of them is young. But it is a matter of perspective. They are looking for ways to communicate? If you find them, they'll tell you. This book is a loving look at a brother-sister relationship, but it could just be a classmate scenario. Parents of children on the spectrum know all too well, each child is so-o-o different. And the book is perfect about areas that won 't be realistic. But this book offers ideas, hope and how to give love for starters. It is hopeful and the large, friendly pictures tell the story with warmth.

This book takes the perspective that Autism is a tragedy ''. I am disappointed to have wasted my money.

   Okay book for introducing autism.
We bought this book to introduce our children to autism, our son. I wish the book were written from a sibling's view instead of a twin.

   I highly recommend!
I bought this book so that I would have a copy to read to students at the elementary school I work at on World Autism Awareness Day. This year we are out of Coronavirus, but I am glad to have it for the next year. I like this picture book, which includes autism more than others I have read. It is honest and inclusive. This is also important to me as mother of a child on the spectrum and a child who is not. The things aren't always easy, but I couldn 't imagine anything else from our family.

A fantastically written book! I tell you that when I first read this to my children at bedtime, I had to stop several times to stop my self from crying. My son was diagnosed with autism less than a year ago and I wanted to find a book that was both understandable and relatable for him and my neurotypical daughter, and this did not disappoint! I would highly recommend this for anyone looking for the same. It wraps understanding of autism with love and acceptance so that you are smiling at the end of the page.
