K-Gr 3 A photo story about an eight-year-old girl who is a dwarf. Although Jaime's body is normal size, her limbs will always be short. This book reveals her relationships with her family and her friends and the difficulties she must face. It is told with compassion and humor, as Jaime takes off her shoes to climb into the refrigerator to get food on the top shelf or slides down the steps on her bottom because the steps hit her at the knees. Her little brother is five and already head and shoulders above her, but she is still his ``big sister'' and reads to him. She takes part in all normal activities, such as Brownies and playing in the park, but when she is selling Girl Scout cookies someone must go with her to ring the doorbells. Kuklin also notes special characteristics of dwarfs, like double-jointedness and the fact that all of the fingers of each hand do not touch. The good-quality black-and-white photographs illustrate the strong family support that Jaime receives. An afterword in smaller type explains dwarfism and offers more background on Jaime's life. A positive book that should be of interest to libraries as it covers a subject about which little has been written. Margaret C. Howell, Capitol Hill Day School Library, Washington, D.C.
