The team at Special Needs Book Review was happy to receive copies of the wonderful children’s book, My Big Brother Bobby: A Story to Help Kids Understand Angry Feelings and Behaviors in Others by Rebecca Dauer with illustrations by Annie Zimanski. Congratulations to Ms. Dauer for self publishing her children’s book about a little girl with a big imagination who teaches other children how to understand angry feelings and behaviors in others.
The last pages of this beautiful picture book are great conversation starters for parents and teachers to share with their young children. There is a page with seven questions to discuss, one page of strategies to help a child calm-down when they get upset or really scared, and one page to prompt discussions about feelings.
Ms. Dauer has information about The Sibling Support Project that is a national effort dedicated to the life-long concerns of brothers and sisters of people who have special health, developmental, or mental health concerns.
Also on the last pages of Ms. Dauer’s book, I learned the mission of the Sibling Leadership Network is to provide siblings of individuals with disabilities the information, support and tools to advocate with their brothers and sisters and to promote the issues important to them and their entire families.
