After her dad was severely wounded, Maria’s smile disappeared. The whole family had to learn how to live with her dad’s disabilities. Ebenezeer still made her dad smile. The uplifting ending shows us another way to deal with disabilities. Sometimes we all just need a special helper. The illustrations by Jennifer Houdeshell are as warm and uplifting as the story. They clearly show the characters’ emotions and ethnicity. This is truly a multicultural story with international appeal. The subject matter of military families having to deal with injuries sustained in defense of freedom is both timely and timeless. “Ebeneezer’s Cousin” is recommended for ages 8-10. Parents and teachers can use this story book to discuss how families deal with separation, hardship, and disabilities. It is also available in Spanish, “El primo de Ebeneezer.”~ Reviewed by: Penelope Anne Cole, Award Winning Author of Magical Matthew and Magical Mea and Mágico Mateo (Spanish), Magical Mea Goes to School, Ten Little Tricksters
