'My big sister Clemmie is my best friend. She can't walk, talk, move around much, cook macaroni, pilot a plane, juggle or do algebra. I don't know why she doesn't do these things
This charming picture book covers the issue of disability in a unique and beautiful celebration of sibling friendship to which all children can relate.
The brother delights in telling us about just how special his sister is and about all the fun things they do together.
In the story we realize that his sister has special needs and by then we just accept, as he does, all the wonderful things about her.

'A truly lovely book.'
Just BecauseMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
Children will love this book Just Because! Adults will know it is about a little boy who loves his severely disabled sister, but little ones will love them both Just Because
Clemmie and Toby do all sorts of things together and enjoy each other’s company whatever Toby gets up to.
A really lovely little book! Not sentimental, not stressing disability, just telling things as they are between a little boy and girl. I loved the words, I loved the illustrations and as it is about love I am allowed to keep repeating ‘love’!
Available in sign language form the website noted.
