Do you remember how hard it is to keep running during Run-For-The-Arts? Just imagine what it would be like if you had Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis like Julie does. This disease makes her arms and legs hurt. In My Brother Made Me Do It Julie's brother helps her by encouraging her to try. He says she would feel proud.She wants to feel proud of something, so she takes his advice, and entered the fun run at school. If you want to find out if she can finish the run, read My Brother Made Me Do It by Peg Kehret. I recommend this book to Transitional and Intermediate students because it's a good lesson in perseverance.
