Brothers and Sisters
by Laura Dwight

"Heartwarming children's picture book about children with special needs and disabilities, written from the point of view of their siblings. A lovely display of high quality photographs is the main feature of each story, showing brothers and sisters happily interacting together, as they play and go about their normal day together. Informative and upbeat, this exceptional children's picture book stars children with Cerebral Palsy, Congenital Amputation (missing a limb), and other disabilities. I highly recommend this special needs children's book for libraries, schools, doctors, therapists, or home."
