Hurrah and congratulations to the three contest winners who will be receiving copies of My Brother Charlie, the new children’s book about autism by Holly Robinson Peete & Ryan Elizabeth Peete!

In first place is Christina Faria, who will be winning the signed copy of My Brother Charlie. Here is what Christina said:

This gave me a much needed smile today. I can’t wait to get my hands on my own copy of the book. Too cute!

Second place winner Rose Deduyo will get a regular copy of the book. Her comment was touching:

I would like to have a copy of the book because I would like to know what is like to have a typical child at home & how it feels to have someone who child like nature to help an autistic child/sibling.

We have a 6.5 years old Daniel who has been diagnosed with Autism. We have no relatives around, no neighbors in the community who has typical child so Daniel will have a role model, whom he can “play with.”. At least through reading a book like My Brother Charlie by HRP, I could at least imagine and dream deep in my heart that Daniel has someone who could teach him how to play the truck, race cars, run with another child, how to play soccer at the point of view of a typical child. Thank you .

Third place winner Stephanie will be sending her regular copy of the book to her sister, an early education teacher:

My sister collects children books and teaches early education and I think this would be an excellent addition to her collection to teach children.

I will send along the winners’ email addresses to the powers that be; you all should hear from them shortly.

Thank you to everyone who entered. Thanks also to Holly and Ryan for their generosity. I am so glad the books will be going to good homes, that My Brother Charlie’s message of autism acceptance and love will be reaching so many people!
