It's a very special book.
It's one of those books that just 'floors' you... stops you... surprises you.
The book is 'Just Because'. It was written by Rebecca Elliot.
This book brought a tear to Mum's eye. It's pretty special.
It's about a little boy and his sister.
The sister's name is Clemmie. She has disabilities. She's non-verbal. She's in a wheelchair. She's just like me.
The boy loves his sister, Clemmie. Just because.
Just like my sisters love me.
In the story, Clemmie can be seen in her wheelchair. She makes her brother feel safe. They go on adventures.
Just like us!
My sisters love this book, too. They see themselves in it.
We got this book from Jackie and Angus, and their children. Thank you! It's perfect!
My sister has a lot in common with Clemmie's brothers.
It's important my sisters read books like this... so they know they're not alone.
Just Because tells the story of Clemmie, a severely disabled girl, through her brother Toby's eyes. Clemmie can't walk, talk, cook macaroni, juggle or do algebra, Toby doesn't know why Clemmie can't do these things, 'just because'. He then goes on to list all the reasons why she is better than most other sisters 'who can be mean and steal your chips' . website
