The best book I've found about Autism! Jan 24, 2008
This book is truly the best book to explain Autism to a child or a sibling of an Autistic child. The text is easy to understand and relate to as a child and the pictures are amazing. I have a son with Autism and this book helped to explain to my younger son without Autism why his brother does some of the things that he does. I am also a 3rd grade teacher and I have read the book to my class and they really enjoyed it and related to the book. We had lots of great discussions and they have a much better understanding of Autism. I also love the way that the author has given suggestions in the back of the book to how you can personalize this book for your own loved one with Autism. I would recommend this book to anyone that needs an easy to understand book about Autism.
Great for helping children to understand autism! Apr 4, 2006
I just read this book and it is a great way to explain the characteristics of autism to young children. Autism is a very complex subject and it's very hard to bring it down to a child's level. My son has autism and has many of the traits mentioned in this book. The author explains them all very well. The author gives suggestions on how to personalize the story for other families/children. This is great - then you can take your personalized story to your church, school or even young members of your family to help them to understand autism.
