Me and my Sister

Rose RobbinsClick here for biography

This appealing brother and sister duo spend a lot of their day together, eating meals, going to school and playing. But life with an autistic sibling is not always easy.

Told from the point of view of the brother, this is a child’s eye view of what it is like to be the responsible sibling, and at the same time a celebration of the highs and lows of having a much loved but differently abled brother or sister.

Praise for this book:

Delightful picture book! Young siblings who are growing up with a brother or sister with autism will readily identify with the sibling experiences depicted. This is a lovely book for parents to read with young siblings and will help start those conversations about the enjoyable and difficult aspects of their family lives.' Monica McCaffrey, founder of SIBS (a UK charity for brothers and sisters of disabled children and adults)

I give this book 5 stars because I believe that it will be a useful tool in the hands of parents, teachers and counsellors to introduce the concept of neurodiversity, acceptance and difference when working with young children.' Georgia Pavlopoulou, Research Fellow, University College London
