Older sister Milly shares a special connection with Malcolm who has Childhood Apraxia of Speech. Through her words, learn how their family is affected by Malcolm’s underdeveloped verbal skills and, in exchange, how his development is positively impacted by his family. In addition to providing awareness of this condition, this delightful story reveals the intelligence of apraxic children, which is sometimes masked by their challenge to verbally communicate.


“It is challenging to find books on Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) which are appropriate to read with small children and that include the perspectives of other family members. This book gives any family with young children who are new to the world of CAS a child friendly way to talk about the unique, supportive and vital role that siblings play in the day to day life of a child learning and growing with CAS. It is exciting to know that there is now a way for families to have those conversations with their ‘typical’ children while they learn to navigate the complex world of CAS.”
