I read this book because I wanted to understand better Ben and his life. I came away understanding how one child affects the whole family. Katherine is an excellent writer and you could tell she spent a lot of time on this book. Years of notes of all of their ordeals in dealing with Ben's illness.
Making Lemonade with Ben: The Audacity to Cope - Katherine J. Perreth - Google книги
I came away understanding that this was a book she needed to write to help other people understand that they are not alone when dealing with their children's illnesses. At times it seemed a little long I read this book because I wanted to understand better Ben and his life.
At times it seemed a little long but I think it needed to show how long sometimes it feels when this is your life day in and day out. The best part of the book was preparing Ben and Katherine for their trip to Washington to receive the award for the Madison Children's Museum from the Institute of Museum and Library Service. It was really neat to see how they did in Washington and what historical sites they saw. I really felt like it was a good book to understand Ben and his family, I just wish I could have read it when I was still working with kids with special needs because it makes you understand a little more why the families want what they feel is best for their child.
I highly recommend this book to everyone.
