In his characteristically wise and gentle way, Mister Rogers challenges the sterotypes that often plague children with special needs, and celebrates six children who are extraordinary friends.

"I can't imagine having a plain old sister," writes Ryan Clearwater, age ten, in one of the 45 essays in Views from Our Shoes. Ryan and the other boys and girls whose essays are featured in this collection range in age from four to eighteen. They share their experiences as the brother or sister of someone with a disability--the good and bad aspects, as well as many thoughtful observations; they are siblings of people with a variety of special needs, including autism, cerebral palsy, developmental delays, chronic health conditions, attention deficit disorder, hydrocephalus, visual and hearing impairments, Down and Tourette syndromes. These personal tales introduce siblings to others like them, perhaps for the first time, and allow them to compare experiences.
