Mom Can't See Me
by Sally Hobart Alexander & George Ancona

This is Sally Hobart Alexander’s own story as told by of her nine-year-old daughter. When she was in her twenties, a rare disease caused the author’s vision to diminish gradually over two years until it was gone. As Leslie Alexander says of her mother, “Mostly she’s like other mothers. ” But she’s different not because she is blind, but because she camps out, plays the piano, tap dances, rides her bike and because she laughs a lot, especially at herself.
