Grade 2-5-- Ancona teams up with blind author Alexander to give readers a picture of her life, told from the vantage point of her nine-year-old daughter. It is a warm picture of family life and explains how both mother and daughter have learned to cope with living with a handicap. Alexander participates in all the family activities: cooking, cleaning, taking the children to lessons, and volunteering at school. She includes some of the frustrations of blindness as well, such as the fear children express of "catching" blindness and the sadness Alexander feels in not seeing what her children are seeing. Ancona's clear black-and-white photographs greatly amplify the text, showing the family at work and at play. This is one of the best books available on blindness. --Margaret C. Howell, West Springfield Elementary School, VA
