My Special Brother Bo Synopsis

Through this sweet story of love and acceptance, siblings of children with special needs will hear that they are loved and hold a unique place within their family. Through Lucy’s voice, children will gain a better understanding of how important and loved they are.
My Special Brother Bo Book Details
- Author: Britt Collins

- Pages: 20
- Publisher: Future Horizons
- Genre: Children’s Fiction
I like how Lucy’s character talks about Bo, showing how much she loves him but also being realistic as she sometimes feels sad when they can’t go somewhere or have to leave early because Bo is struggling to handle it. I think this would be a good book for the entire family that includes a child with special needs because it can give the parents an insight into how their non-special needs child might be feeling and make sure they know to give them a little extra attention.
Recommendation & Where to Find It
I would recommend this book to families that have a child or teen with special needs in it and also to Primary Schools and Nurseries to encourage a wider understanding of how it feels to have a sibling with special needs. To promote love, positive attention and compassion.
