    I bought this In hope it would help my 5 year old and 7 year old understand why their 3 year old twin brothers behave the way they do. Well this book definitely does that. I'm very glad I bought this book and ignored the negative reviews no autistic children are the same and if there is something in the book your child doesn't do I don't think there's anything wrong with being aware of these things. My eldest son has a severely autistic child in his class who bit his finger once he now understands why! Great book a must for siblings with autistic brothers.

    Obviously autism is unique to each child, but this book was a useful tool in initiating a discussion with our autistic son's siblings. My only slight problem is that some of the behaviour described is quite severe, which frightened my youngest daughter until she learned it wasn't all relevant to our family. But this should make my children more understanding in general. It's also a very basic book in terms of the illustration etc, but that's not a huge deal. Worth buying.

    This book is brilliant we have had it for a year now and my daughter regularly asks for it most nights as a bedtime story. My son does many of the things in this book and it's great tool to teach my daughter to learn how to empathize with her brother and understand his behavior. It also echoes many aspects of our lives and the judgement my son receives from people who don't understand (or don't care to understand). People with ASD continue to be marginalized by our society and more books like this ones are needed.

    I bought this for my older kids and I think it helped seeing their brothers symptoms and actions written in a simple story form helped them understand that no...mum actually isn't making it up and there are others like Daniel out there.

    Fabulous little book, my daughter loved it & to know she wasn't the only one in the world to have a special brother lifted her spirits x

    Not quite what I expected and my son is not in all aspects so affected but it might help my daughter to understand a bit better.

    I bought this for my son to help him understand his little brothers with autism. It's a beautiful book and has a very clear message. A great starting point for teaching NT kids about autism.

    A very good book for your siblings if they have a brother with a learning difficulty.
