    1. هذه الرواية كانت من أولى الروايات التي قرأتها عندما كنت صغيرة، أذكر أني لم أستطع تركها حتى أنهيت آخر صفحة في الرواية لقد استمتعت بكل تفاصيلها وتذكرني نوعًا ما بأختي التي لديها إعاقة وأشعر بداخلي بأنها وبطريقة ما تتحدث عني رواية بريئة أحببتها جدًا

    2. This rating is purely based on the impression that this book left on me as a young teen. Between the ages of 12 and 15, I "worked" in my school library. There were numerous benefits; staying inside when it was raining, getting to take out as many books as I liked, and being recommended books by the librarian. The latter part is how I came across this book.I must have taken this book out of the library half a dozen times. Then, when it was deemed too tatty to remain on the shelves, I got to take [...]

    4. I first read this book as a child in about 2002/2003 so this is the first time reading it as an adult.Red Sky in the Morning is about a young girl called Anna who is excited about her baby brother being born. The book is written from her point of view.Sadly, her baby brother is born with a disability and Anna and her family then try to come to terms with this.I particularly like how the book portrays Ben's disability in an honest and respectful way. I was happy with the ending and I like how far [...]

    5. I SO love this book not only because of its noble theme and beautiful language, but also because of the endearing memories I still have for it.I was an 11-year-old volunteer at the school library where I came to find this book. When I started reading it, I simply couldn't stop. It's a heart-warming story about Anna who has recently welcomed a new member of the family, Ben. Unfortunately, this new-born baby suffers from a disability and, eventually, all his family suffers along. Anna gets so atta [...]

    6. I chose to read this children's book because of its small size. But let me tell you, size is very deceiving when the content engulfs the whole world within its small confines. Red Sky in the Morning is a truly inspirational story about a family which suffers the reality of disorder. It conveys real people, real emotions, and heart-wrenching instances of every day bravery. It can bring tears to your eyes. In addition, it is written beautifully. If any book deserves 5 stars, it's this one.

    12. A wonderful story of a girl growing up with the extra depth that comes from facing adversity. In Anna's case the adversity is through having a brother born profoundly disabled and loving him deeply then losing him unexpectedly. The insightful clarity that these issues gives Anna about how other people she knows do what they do and even why she does what she does makes great reading as we follow along as Anna grows from girl to young adult.

    13. the way she tells her story, Anna describes things from our social life. Especially when she talks about jealousy, love, happiness and tragedy, it's just creative. you can feel friendly towards Anna, Ben, Katy, Miranda and all the other characters; want to meet each of them .

    14. Red Sky in the Morning was immature, stiff, and generally annoying.

    18. This book was a short and a quick read. It was honestly such a nice little read. It follows the main character Anna for three years of her life, beginning when she is 12. At this time she is awaiting the arrival of her new sibling and as the eldest she feels this responsibility to be the mature and helping hand. Her new brother arrives and they quickly discover that he has been born with a severe disability so the plot develops into how Anna deals with looking after her brother but also the stra [...]

    19. The size of the book was deceiving, it looked like something I would be able to finish quickly but was actually very captivating.The book is about the a family of four, until Anne's mother becomes pregnant with a disabled child.Anne immediately grows close to Ben, the disabled child as they seem to only understand each other.My favourite character was Anne because unlike her sister Katy, she was caring and understandable but a bit stubborn at times.

    21. A heart-breaking and hope-filled tale of love, family, loss, and life. A touching read for upper elementary and middle schoolers.

    22. I was probably about 11 when I read this book. It was one my older sister brought home from the school library and, me being a book nut, I just had to read it. And it was like nothing I've read before. It was so deep, so honest, and nothing like the quick easy reads I was used to as a pre-teen. As I recall, it was utterly unputdownable. I remember reading it all over the house, just addicted to the whole thing. Mostly, I remember sitting on the end of my bed at about three in the morning, hunche [...]

    23. This novel is about Ann, a twelve-year-old girl who is looking forward to the birth of her new brother Ben, who unfortunately turns out to be suffering from a disability. All her family suffers with him, but eventually, Ann becomes closer and closer to him. At first, she was afraid to express her feeling towards her brother in front of her classmates, but later she learns that the students sympathize with her and actually love her brother, which made Ann even happier with her brother. I liked th [...]

    24. This was a really heartwarming story about a girl with a disabled brother. There were so many parts where I wanted to cry, but I just didn't get there because the book was too short! Certain aspects of the book (like the MAIN part- but I'm not going to spoil!) were too rushed so I didn't feel the emotion I would otherwise normally feel. I also found it difficult to like Anna's narration. But the last part of the book, when she looks after Jackie, was really enjoyable. Overall, the book was okay, [...]

    25. Anna loves her baby brother, Ben. But the truth is, Ben isn’t normal. He’s got ‘Hydrocephalus’, which makes him different and grows harder than other kids. That problem makes Anna’s friend different.I think the best part is when Anna saw her brother’s grave and also when Ben died. The story is sad, but beautiful. Always wants me to read it again and again. Great book, touching and inspiring.First time I read it (10 years): Liked itSecond time (11 years): Loved it, cried :)

    26. This book is amazing. I remember reading it in primary school, and I cried over it so many times.This story is about a girl called Anna, whose little brother, Ben, is handicapped. I absolutely adored Ben, and really admired Anna as she loved her brother so much that, upopular as she was at school, she was finally able to stand up for him, and protect him.I would reccommend this to anyone over ten, who wants an emotional read.

    29. I read this as a teenager. It was my sister's literature read and since in those days, I used to read voraciously and constantly ran out, I picked this up. It was a delightful tale of a sister coming to terms with her own teenaged years while dealing with family turmoil causes by the birth of a brother with hydrocephalus.
