Brotherly Feelings: Me, My Emotions, and My Brother with AS
Quantity in Basket: None
By Sam Frender and Robin Schiffmiller and Illustrations by Dennis Dittrich ©2007.
This 8-year-old author and brother of Eric, a teen with Asperger Syndrome (AS), explains in honest, simple, and straightforward language what it is like living in his family. Sam describes feelings such as worry, resentment, frustration, compassion, and love, and he writes about his own struggle with the need to be perfect and always be responsible so that he is not a burden to his parents.
He describes how he has learned to cope with his brother's uniqueness, and what he does to calm himself down when life with Eric gets to be too much. Sam also explains how his parents have been instrumental in helping him deal with his brother's diagnosis. For readers ages 8-12. (Softcover; 64 pages.)
