peeteOur Oscar weekend was surreal from beginning to end. One of the highlights was meeting 21 Jump Street‘s Holly Robinson Peete and her daughter, Ryan. The two collaborated on My Brother Charlie, a book based on Holly’s 10-year-old son, who has autism. In the book, Charlie’s big sister tells us that for everything that Charlie can’t do well, there are plenty more things that he’s good at. He knows the names of all the American presidents. He knows stuff about airplanes. And he can even play the piano better than anyone he knows. It is a lovely book. If autism has touched your life in any way, buy the book on Amazon.
