Just Because

Full Product Description

"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. Just because."

Just Because tells of a brother's love for his sister. He is so enthusiastic about just how loving and special she is, and delights in telling us about all the fun things they do together. Only as his tale unfolds does the reader begin to realise that his sister has special needs... and by then we just accept as he does all the wonderful things about her.

Rebecca Elliot's heart-warming picture book, much celebrated for its touching and sensitive approach to introducing the issue of disability to young children through a charming celebration of sibling friendship, is now more accessible to a younger audience. In a sturdy board book format, Just Because will withstand story time after story time, the chunky pages are easier for little children to turn themselves, and it can certainly survive being shared between siblings!

"A truly lovely book. It is indeed for all readers, all children and all adults. It shows children what's possible and it puts adults in a position in which we can see and understand everyone, not just the so-called able-bodied. It's fun, it's rhythmic, it's thoughtful. It's not simply or only 'worthy' - though it is the best kind of worthy - it has a poetry about it." - Michael Rosen, Children's poet and former Children's Laureate.

"This delightful, warm, beautifully illustrated picture book deserves a place on every bookshelf." - Jacqueline Wilson, Children's author and former Children's Laureate.

"A book that deserves a place in every library and school in the country!" - Joy Court, Chair of the Youth Librarians' Group.
