Summary
From bestselling author and actress Holly Robinson Peete--a heartwarming story about a boy who happens to be autistic, based on Holly's son, who has autism."Charlie has autism. His brain works in a special way. It's harder for him to make friends. Or show his true feelings. Or stay safe." But as his big sister tells us, for everything that Charlie can't do well, there are plenty more things that he's good at. He knows the names of all the American presidents. He knows stuff about airplanes. And he can even play the piano better than anyone he knows.Actress and national autism spokesperson Holly Robinson Peete collaborates with her daughter on this book based on Holly's 10-year-old son, who has autism.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In an honest, simple narrative, young Callie talks about how much she loves her autistic twin brother, Charlie, and how much they share. As she explains what autism is and how her family cares for Charlie, she also speaks frankly about challenges. The mixed-media illustrations, in bright, opaque colors, show the loving connections in Callie's African American family, as well as the tension and anger. Charlie does so many things well: he plays the piano, for example. Sometimes he supports his sister, and he has an incredible bond with their dog. Still, there are days when it's hard to be Charlie's sister. . . . Sometimes he can ruin the best playdates; other times he won't speak. Warm but never sentimental, this welcome picture book is based on the mother-and-daughter authors' experiences, and a beautiful photo of the authors' family appears on the back cover, while a personal concluding note offers more facts. A great choice for introducing the subject of autism to young children or for starting discussion in any family dealing with disability.--Rochman, Hazel Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This mother-daughter author team base their thoughtful and moving story on their experiences living with Ryan's autistic brother, RJ. Callie, a candid narrator whose twin brother is autistic, explains that "Charlie's brain works in a special way." She mentions the boy's strong will ("When Charlie wants something, nothing stops him. Even when it's dangerous") and tendency to withdraw into his own world, acknowledging that "there are days when it's hard to be Charlie's sister." Yet she also documents Charlie's talents and the good times they share. Her often-silent brother has taught Callie important lessons, among them "love doesn't always come from what you say. It can also come from what you do." Throughout, Callie demonstrates maturity and loyalty: "We love Charlie strong. We watch over him with the might of angels. We have to." Equally expressive, Evans's (When Gorilla Goes Walking) mixed-media art features closeup images of the siblings and their parents and conveys the wide range of emotions all experience. The authors' postscripts offer background and advice for families dealing with someone with autism. Ages 6-10. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
