ea. vol: 32p. (Real Life Photo Series). CIP. Childrens. Oct. 1985. PLB $7.45. K-Gr 3 These two titles are the first in a series in which children describe life with a handicapped family member. Young Jennifer English writes about life with her mother, who has multiple sclerosis, in My Mommy's Special, the better of these books. Her mom is in a wheelchair, so Jennifer has always helped her. In My Sister's Special , Jo Prall describes life with a sister who is brain injured and cannot speak or use her arms and legs. He describes playing with her, reading to her, going to school and shopping. Throughout he talks about her sense of humor. The photographs enhance the texts, although some are unclear and dark. The placement of text and photographs is varied and there is not much print, so the books could easily be shared with young children. Similar titles, such as My Friend Leslie (Lothrop, 1983) by Maxine B. Rosenberg and My Brother Steven Is Retarded (Macmillan, 1977) by Harriet L. Sobol , give more insight into the feelings of the child and are suitable for older children. These new titles fill a need for younger children. Margaret C.
