A wonderfully written book, that will appeal to adults/kids.
on 7 October 2001
As an SEN assistant, this has got to be one of the most beautiful books I have ever had the pleasure of sharing with children of all abiltities and ages.
The book is written so that young readers can read it to themselves or share it with their friends or family. The beautifully illustrated pictures show Susan doing general day to day activities which children can relate to. This is a book with enough depth to form the basis of a discussion with children of all ages. It looks with insight, and without sentimentality at an issue that is relevant to all our lives and with clever picture shows Susan to be like any child in our lives, we only realize that Susan is a child with special needs at the very end. There are only a few words in this book, but it delivers a powerful message. Well done Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross, for providing a positive image of children with special needs.
