Aleah doesn't have a belly button, long story, but I find myself weaning books about belly buttons out of our collection. Of course one day she will have to learn what a belly button is and what it is used for, I just want her to be old enough and ready for it. I'm also shying away from books that say things like "ears are for hearing"... which, of course they are.. I don't know. I should mention that I'm a librarian by education and training.

Have you found any books about children with any kinds of disabilities? If I could illustrate I'd write one myself and become RICH.

I have not found any yet, but I also haven't looked, LOL! I am sure there are some out there.

Ya know, I have thought the same thing about doing books myself. What a great thing it would be. I can't illustrat either.

Btw, I went to your link and your girls are beautiful! You have a gorgeous family!

I know I have seen some over the years but the only one that sticks in my mind is one called I'm the Big Sister Now. My mom actually found this book at a thrift store. It is about two siblings, the older one has CP and the story is about how as the two girl grow up the younger sibling comes to be more like the "older" sibling because she helps her sister do things that she now can do. Does that make sense? It is a really sweet book with nice illustrations.
