This book is told from a young girls point of view on her blind mother. She describes things that she still does with her mother but are impacted by her mothers disability and how she loves her mom through all she does that may embarrass her at times. This is a good informational book because it is about a real family and their experiences. I would use this for primary and intermediate. The illustrations are black and white pictures of the family.

This book is a story about the author, who is blind. It is told from her daughter's point of view. The point is to show that even though her mom does things differently, she is still the same as other mothers. She might need help doing things, but she does a lot on her own and a lot normally. This book shows that with family and love anything is possible. The daughter was so in love with her mom,very mature, and helpful. I would read this to my class when talking about disabilities. ( )

Although the pictures used to show the life of one who is visually impaired are severely dated, the message of overcoming adversity with a positive attitude and family support is timeless. ( )
