All About My Brother – An eight-year-old sister’s introduction to her brother who has autism – by Sarah Peralta – Really appreciate how this book presents the perspective of living with a sibling who has autism.

Personal Response:
I think that this book is very heart-warming. It was written by an eight year old girl, about her brother who has autism.

This is an excellent reader for students. It is especially great if students are inclusive classrooms or schools that children with severe disabilities. This story is written from the perspective of 8 year old, Sarah, who little brother, Evan, has autism. The main idea of the story was to educate individuals on autism and some of the symptoms/ effects. This is important because it is written from an eight year old perspective, so it is easy for young children to understand. This is a great book ...more

This book is really cute. It's written and illustrated by 8 year old Sarah Peralta, and tells about her brother with autism. She tells about the quirky things he does and how much fun she has with him. Her family worked hard to make this a teaching tool for children who have a sibling with a disability. It comes with a letter from her parents, forewords from professionals in the field, and a section suggesting how this book be used to best help the child reading it. Sarah does a great job highli ...more

This is a good book.
Victoria Clay
I thought this book was unique in that it gave insight into how the siblings of children with a disablity feel about it. I love that it was written by a child as well. I think this book could serve so many purposes. It could serve as an inspiration for students to write their own books. It could serve as a conversation starter for discussing children with disabilities and what their lives are like. I think it is a must-have in the classroom.

This book is so heart-warming! I love it. A little girl talks about her brother EVan who has autism. She talks about the things that he like to do, such as wear clothes. The illustartions are great as well. The children will love it.

This appears to be a children's book but some of the content is a bit too complex for the intended target audience in my opinion.
