Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Patricia Timbrook
In their photo-biography about Amanda, the Carters show the reader what one type of blindness is, and what it is not. Amanda who can't see very well due to blind spots caused by a tumor enjoys days as typical as any other youngster. She goes to ballet class and uses a computer. Her story is a positive one for any child learning to live with a handicap or an illness.
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-A heartwarming narrative related by a visually impaired child. In a matter-of-fact manner, second-grader Amanda explains how she deals with her sight loss in her daily life. The full-color photographs on each page show the girl and others using various tools and aids (Braille, magnifiers, guide dogs, etc.) to help them learn, work, maneuver safely, and communicate. Amanda describes how she and others enjoy social activities, learn new things, and work productively, helping readers realize that impairments do not make a person think or feel differently. The text evokes compassion and empathy by presenting real people living normally despite their impairments.-Stephani Hutchinson, Pioneer Elementary School, Sunnyside, WA
