I'm giving it four stars for two reasons: I wish it came in hardback, and there are some grammatical errors.
Update: today at the park there was an autistic child. I watched a mother steer her four year old away from playing with the kid. My two year old looked at her wild gesticulations and vocalizations, and she looked up at me questioningly. I just said "She's like Clarabelle Blue." My baby beamed and recited from memory "Clarabelle Blue, she's just like you! Special needs!" She was too shy to approach the girl but she kept beaming at her, and I was so very grateful for this book.
Then buy this book!!! Beautifully illustrated, wonderfully told, we all learn ClaraBelle Blue is just like you, and me and all of us. Inclusion isn't a dirty word and we should all be actively reading stories like this to our children to dispel the stigma of children and others with special needs. My 7 month old seems to already enjoy the photos and listens to me when I read the story. Bravo on a great book, I can't wait for more!
P.s. my daughter requested chapter books please!
