Sammy does not go to school with his older brother—Sammy has to go to school on a special bus. The brothers cannot play in the park together—Sammy lies under the tree and watches the leaves. Sammy’s brother is angry because Sammy is autistic and does not know how to be a “normal” brother. Then, one day, Sammy’s older brother realizes that he should not demand everything on his own terms and that Sammy’s way of doing things may not be so bad after all.

Simply written and beautifully illustrated, this moving book realistically portrays being a sibling of an autistic child. Ages 4-8.
