By Shaila Abdullah
This charming book tells the story of an 8 year old girl who decides to make a list of all the things she likes and dislikes about dealing with her autistic brother, and in doing so she realizes she has made A Manual for Marco.
"Through her genuine and caring accounts about growing up with an older,
autistic brother, this 8-year-old also shows her love for her sibling who is special but sometimes does things that are not-so-special. I highly recommend this book written with sensitivity and beautifully illustrated."
--Lorna d'Entremont, M.Ed., Special Needs Book Review
