Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-Carter offers a brief description of the disorder, followed by photographic essays about four children with different degrees of disability. Emily's stiff muscles and tendons limit her movement, but she is determined to be as normal as she can be, even learning to skate and play basketball. She attends special classes in a regular school. Nic is wheelchair-bound and able to speak only a few words. He goes to a special school and has found ways to compensate for his handicap by using his sense of humor as well as the tools provided to him such as a talking computer. Tanner has a milder form of CP; he is determined to play football and even act in a school play. Leslie has had operations for her physical disabilities but now loves to spend time riding horses. These stories are told with multiple full-color photographs showing the children at work and at play. The simple explanation of the disorder is supported by the inclusion of lists of organizations that can give additional information as well as by books and periodicals on the subject. With many children attending schools with varying degrees of cerebral palsy, this solid introduction to the disability provides just enough information for younger children or to begin a discussion.-Margaret C.

Kirkus Reviews
Another outstanding health-related title by the author of I'm Tougher Than Asthma (not reviewed). Here the author explores the daily routines and challenges of three appealing school-age children with cerebral palsy. Emily, Nic, and Tanner, ach speak with a clear, personal voice. Engaging color photographs and the concise text capture the courage and a positive spirit of each of the children "working hard at simple things." The book begins with an introduction written by Dr. Rebecca Campbell, who describes the three most common types of CP: spasticity (extreme stiffness of muscles and tendons); choreoathetosis (uncontrolled flinging) and hypotonia (floppiness)—and discusses current research on the causes and management of cerebral palsy. Sources of information are provided, including organizations, Web sites, magazines, and books. Emily has the most common type of CP, stiffness of tendons and muscles. As her father helps her exercise, she growls, "Sassafras!" "Rhubarb!" It hurts to stretch, but Emily says it helps her move better. Other photographs show her with her physical therapist, at play with her sister, and greeting friends at school. Nic spends most of his time in a wheelchair. He is shown practicing simple words with his speech therapist, communicating through his laptop computer, riding the school bus, bowling from his wheelchair, and struggling with his walker. Tanner, the least affected by CP, has a slight limp and weakness in one arm. It doesn't stop him from sharing in class or playing football with his brother. Emily concludes with a message to all kids: "Sometimes people are scared or shy because we move or talk funny.But youdon't have to be. We like the same things you like." An important book for sharing. (Nonfiction. 8-10)
