    highly recommended for all parents

    This is a book about asking for help in an appropriate and effective manner. A little handicapped boy is frustrated because he cannot help himself. Neither his arms nor his legs "work." He tries to get help by yelling and when that ceases to become effective, he makes faces and frowns in anger. Then, his little sister tells him his methods just don't work and she uses humor to help her brother learn that if he asks for help politely, there will be many people willing to help him.

    This is a wonderful book with striking illustrations. It should be in school libraries and especially, in rehabilitation facitities for handicapped children. Although it is written about a handicapped child, all children would benefit from the messages in the book.
