My Brother Is Special: A Cerebral Palsy Story Book by Murray Stenton


My Brother Is Special: A Cerebral Palsy Story by Murray Stenton

Ethan is a big brother like no other!

Life with a special need child has its fair share of challenges. These challenges are not only for the parents, but extend to those other wonderful little children, the siblings. This book helps shine some light on the difficulties and the job siblings special needs children experience every day. It is a light-hearted take of one little boy's thoughts of his big brother Ethan, who was born with Cerebral Palsy.


I rated this book 5 *****'s 

This book is such a special read 
 
I loved reading this book. I read it with my Mom when we went camping last month. It is a short book but very special to read. I liked the illustration as well. I wish I can draw like that.  
 
I can relate to this book when my big brother a little bit. They have different situations but help to understand them are the same. Dealing with my big brother sometimes is difficult, my Mom always remind me that he is different in a very special way. You just have to be there for him. I still love my big brother despite being different.  
 
It does not matter to me if some kids are different just like my big brother. They still have the heart and needs compassion, understanding and above all unconditional love. We have no right to judge them because they are different. Life is full of mystery and we need to respect other people.

About the author
From an early age, Murray was artistic. His favorite pastime was and still is doodling cute and fun little characters. As Murray entered the working world he utilized his natural creative talent in his graphic design profession. Illustrating being his true love, Murray started looking for freelance illustration work. Murray had no idea that answering a Kijiji ad would help his long time ambitions come to life. A well-known children’s book author and disability advocate, Jewel Kats gave him a shot at illustrating one of her children’s books. That experience gave Murray the courage to pursue other illustration contracts. Murray had an instant connection to Jewel, through the world of physical disability. Murray’s oldest son Ethan had a stroke at birth causing CP and other life altering conditions. With his new found courage and through the help of Victor R. Volkman and Loving Healing Press Murray brings this wonderful story to children everywhere. Murray’s hope is those siblings of children with disabilities will know they too are not alone.
