Book Review: All About My Brother

I had a project to do this past spring for a class I had in diversity in language arts where I had to review children's books.  After receiving Chris' autism diagnosis shortly before this assignment I looked for a book to review that was about autism and how to explain what it was to children.  Along came "All About My Brother" by Sarah Peralta.

"All About My Brother" is a written by an eight year old child who happens to have a  brother with autism.  It uses technical but kid friendly terms when explaining what autism is, what it can look like, and how autism may affect sibling relationships.  I recommend this book to anyone who has a child who is autistic.
