My big sister Clemmie is my best friend. She cant walk, talk, move around much, cook macaroni, pilot a plane, juggle or do algebra. I dont know why she doesnt do these things. Just because. This heartwarming picture book about being perfectly loved, no matter what, tells of a brother's love for his sister. He is so 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 we just accept as he does all the wonderful things about her. This amusing and often touching story encompasses the issue of disability in a charming celebration of sibling friendship to which all children can relate.
