Library Journal - Library JournalKnowing that "parents' strongest allies will always be other parents," Klein and Schive have collected from all over the country stories by parents of children with special needs. You Will Dream New Dreams is a remarkable parent's support group in print. The shared narratives come from those with newly diagnosed children, adult disabled children, and everything in between; their stories are short and unfold in plain language just what the parent suffering from informational and emotional overload needs. These experiences offer hope and encouragement and serve as a reminder that there are others out there who can help. The appendix includes resources to help parents track down local information and support. Klein is a cofounder of Exceptional Parent magazine and Schive is an associate editor there, so one can assume that this book will get ample publicity from that publication, the one most read by the target audience. This one will be requested. Essential for all consumer health collections. KellyJo Houtz Griffin, Eatonville, WA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

'You Will Dream New Dreams' is a unigue publication in that it is written for parents by parents. No matter how well meaning or informed a professional may be there is no substitute for hearing real experiences from others who have lived them. This book is formatted in a way that enables the reader to select pages a random and read only a portion of the essays at once. When our daughter was born I remember a tremendous 'information overload' which, combined with the shock of her birth, left me unable to absord large amounts of information. I highly remommend this helpful and informative book to anyone.
