    Highly recommended for any family with children dealing with a sibling's autism diagnosis.

    My son's doctor read this book to my daughter in an attempt to help her understand and deal with her brother's diagnosis. She seemed to warm to it, so I ordered it, and now she and her other brother choose it often as a bedtime story! It is almost harshly honest at certain points, but from a sibling's point of view I find it refreshing and helpful. Sometimes, my kids get tired of being nice and just need to say, "this stinks". The book then turns around and gives all of the positives. Very good at pointing out that different doesn't mean less wonderful. However, if you're dealing with any sort of non-verbal or limited verbal autism, be prepared to cry at some point. I have been very happy that I ordered it. Definitely recommend!

    My Brother Charlie

    This is a lovely picture book with a story that shows the disappointments and joys of having a sibling who is autistic. Children with autistic siblings will easily relate to the story. Children without much knowledge about autism will get an easy to understand introduction to autism. Great for classroom use, too!

    A Sweet Story

    Our Grandson was just diaganosed with being on the spectrum of Autism. Because it was caught so early , in the last 6 months, a boy who was not speaking at all and has had alot of therapy is excelling in hundreds of way. This book is a story of hope and understanding of Autism and how it can affect the siblings in the family. WE were going thru 10 weeks of training on how to handle different situations with our Grandson. I let the teacher read this book during a break and she welled up with tears. I gave the book to our Grandson's older sister. She understands that he has this, but not exactly what its all about or How it may make him different. We hope the book will help her to understand better how he may be different. We loved the book

    Inspirational Story Told by the Sister of a Child Who Has Autism

    This story would be very helpful for any family with a child who has autism. Holly Robinson Peete and her daughter, Ryan Peete have created an inspirational story for families with children of all ages. In making the story relatable to any age range, the reader is able to better understand what life is like when living with a brother, sister, son, or daughter who has autism. Very inspirational for any family member having a hard time understanding what is happening with their child, grandchild, sibling, etc.

    Autism speaks, it's time to listen.

    If you have a child who has autism, remember this: Your child may have autism, but autism does not have your child.

    My Brother Charlie was educational and Inspirational

    My Goddaughter truly enjoyed this book. The characters were motivating and educational with a valuable lesson that portrayed a great story line. Illustrations were very easy to understand for the age group that it was focused on. I enjoyed reading it with her and helping her to understand the characters.

    Great for siblings or friends

    My son received this for his birthday. He is five and his autistic brother is 6, the book was a great way for me to explain to my youngest son that he is not the only one in the world with an autistic sibling who seems not to love him. I liked the personal story and I think the book was great. It was great to read with him and talk about situations he could relate to. And the ending was positive!
