5 - Excellent Review


This book gives an informative view of a child who is entering the "regular" world his Mother has so deftly sheltered him from for 9 years. Forced legally to send her blind child to school for the first time, the Mother and child find the situation stressful. The teacher handles the child amazingly well and succeeds in making the transition rewarding for all involved. This book is a very sensitive look at the high cost of over protecting a child from reality and the ensuing problems it can cause.
