Item Description

The Best Worst Brother is an endearing and realistic look at how a relationship evolves between a typically developing older sister and her younger brother with a developmental disability. It also shows how sign language can help a child that acquires speech more slowly. As Emma is pleased to discover, Isaac can learn to sign, he just learns when he’s ready. For those who recognise aspects of their own family in the story, it will be comforting to read about this ‘warts and all’ sibling relationship. Charlotte Fremaux’s realistic illustrations are deft and colourful. For ages 4-8.
