Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
Heroism comes in many forms. Often the most heroic people are those who cope with the blows that fate deals. Sally Hobart Alexander lost her sight in her 20's, but that didn't prevent her from leading a full life. To feel uplifted, read her book, a photo essay told from 9-year-old Leslie's point of view. Sally does everything that sighted mom's do except drive. She tap dances, camps out, rides a bike, plays the piano, sings, and even cooks using Braille recipes. She's a terrific mom.
Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
In Alexander's Mom Can't See Me, the author tells her own story from the viewpoint of her nine-year-old daughter. Photographed in black and white, this book is an emotional rainbow of pictures and words. The girl's pride in her mother's courage and accomplishments, the humor that touches every part of their life, and the sadness as the mother "takes a double share of touching and hearing" because she can't see her children. We see the creative ingenuity of compensations they have evolved in their relationship, the ways they share activities, and the warmth and intimacy of their life together that seems unhampered, perhaps even enhanced by Ms. Alexander's blindness.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-- Ancona teams up with blind author Alexander to give readers a picture of her life, told from the vantage point of her nine-year-old daughter. It is a warm picture of family life and explains how both mother and daughter have learned to cope with living with a handicap. Alexander participates in all the family activities: cooking, cleaning, taking the children to lessons, and volunteering at school. She includes some of the frustrations of blindness as well, such as the fear children express of ``catching'' blindness and the sadness Alexander feels in not seeing what her children are seeing. Ancona's clear black-and-white photographs greatly amplify the text, showing the family at work and at play. This is one of the best books available on blindness. --Margaret C. Howell, West Springfield Elementary School, VA
