Reviews for My Brother Is Special: A Cerebral Palsy Story by Murray Stenton

Reviews for My Brother Is Special: A Cerebral Palsy Story by Murray Stenton 

"Explains with the use of rhyme to a young child as to why a sibling may be different and can't do the same things that a sibling can do. The illustrating is done professionally and is a book that would be great for a gift for a family that is dealing with a child with disabilities" reviews Celticlady's Reviews Giveaways read the full review below

"This short and well illustrated book explores the emotions that the child without special needs might be having" - reviews Miki's Hope read the full review below

Ethan is a big brother like no other!

Life with a special need child has its fair share of challenges. These challenges are not only for the parents, but extend to those other wonderful little children, the siblings. This book helps shine some light on the difficulties and the job siblings special needs children experience every day. It is a light-hearted take of one little boy's thoughts of his big brother Ethan, who was born with Cerebral Palsy.

Review by Celticlady's Reviews

My Brother is Special is a book about a child who has a big brother who has special needs, with Cerebral Palsy. Cerebral Palsy can happen before or during birth, damaging the child's brain. There can be a variety of damage that can cause vision, hearing and speech problems along with learning disabilities.

This book can help explain to a young child as to why a sibling may be different and can't do the same things that a sibling can do. The story is told in a rhyme and is very concise in explanation, the illustrating is done professionally and is a book that would be great for a gift for a family that is dealing with a child with disabilities. There is also a list in the back of the book with helpful websites that are helpful, in US and Canada. I really liked it and find it to be perfect. I enjoy books written for children that are educational and have a message.

Review by Miki's Hope

It can not be easy when one of your children is a special needs child and the other is not. This gets even worse if the special needs child is the older of the two. How do you explain that this is still their sibling and needs and deserves all the love and patience same as everyone else, or maybe a bit more.

This short and very well illustrated book may help. It starts to explain to young children the dynamics of being different because of a medical condition over which no one has any control. It explores the emotions that the child with out special needs might be having. Personally I suggest you read this to your young child and point out the important issues. Most will understand via the pictures alone--but reinforcement never hurts.

At the end of this book is an explanation of the 3 main types of cerebral palsy --very interesting and informative.
