Amusing and often touching, this story encompasses the issue of disability in a charming celebration of sibling friendship to which all children can relate My big sister Clemmie is my best friend. She can’t walk, talk, move around much, cook macaroni, pilot a plane, juggle or do algebra. I don’t know why she doesn’t do these things. Just because. A younger brother describes all the fun he has with the big sister he loves so much—just because, in this heartwarming picture book about being perfectly loved, no matter what. He is enthusiastic about just how loving and special she is, and delights in telling us about all the fun things they do together. Only as his tale unfolds does the reader begin to realize that his sister has special needs—and by then the reader just accepts, as he does, all the wonderful things about her. Teachers and librarians will appreciate this book for its sincere and convincing treatment of children with special needs, while parents will use this book to encourage sibling friendship and to read with children who are beginning to ask why a particular child they know is "different."

"Refreshingly, the story is about the bond between the siblings and all that they can do. . . . it serves as an excellent reminder that children in wheelchairs are not defined by their disabilities." —School Library Journal
"Elliott does a rare thing, humorously and beautifully: she portrays a character with profound disabilities. . . . With its steady refrain and comforting illustrations reminiscent of rag dolls, this book would make a wonderful read-aloud." —Storypockets (Carnegie Library blog)
