My Holly a story of a brother’s acceptance

Written and Illustrated by Julie Leavitt Wolfe Friesen Press (2011)

my holly My Holly is the story of a boy named Jack and the acceptance he has about his little sister, Holly, who is a person with special needs. Jack sometimes feels sad because he wants his mom and dad to play with him and his Mega Power People or take him to his favorite restaurant, Syd’s, but they are busy taking Holly to therapy or doctor appointments.

Jack begins to understand that his parents do try to make sure he knows he’s important and loved and begins to believe, just like his mom, that one day Holly will be able to do anything she wants. The author was a kindergarten teacher for five years in Teaneck, N.J., before having her two children, Ryan and Sydney.
