really liked it

I enjoyed this book’s perspective, of a boy who has a little brother with autism. Reading it more than a couple decades after publication, though, many parts were a bit hard to deal with. It does give great insight of being a sibling to a kid with autism, though, and how some therapy approaches require so much investment from the whole family.

However, I do wish books like these would be updated to reflect changes in what we know about a diagnosis, especially one like autism. I feel this book, if it were updated, could be good for the older brother of a child I am a disability support worker for! The use of the “r-word” and lack of inclusive educational supports (or poorly done ones as is the case of Edward) make it a book I could never recommend to a family navigating autism in this decade.
