My 4 year old daughter has Autism. I bought this book for her daycare provider to help explain Autism to some of the older children. Overall the book provides useful information and is an inexpensive tool for explaining Autism to children. I was disappointed with some things though. There are 9 pages of pictures with children, only one is of a girl. Also, on the last page it starts "Kids with Autism sometimes like to play with their friends". The picture on this page show a child playing with an Adult. I would have liked it to show a child playing with one or more children. It looks more like the child is playing with a family member or therapist than a friend.

As a pediatric occupational therapist I highly recommend this book for young siblings. It would also be appropriate for preschool and kindergarten classes. The book is very matter-of-fact in its explanation and I like that approach.

This book helped my 7 yr old understand a little bit more about this developmental disorder that his 3 yr old cousin has. It is a great book and so helpful.

This book is an excellent resource for teachers of young children who wish to introduce the topic of autism to their students. Autism is a disability that can create communication problems as well as making relationship building harder. Whether a teacher is helping students understand a fellow student's disability or simply making students aware of diversity within a classroom and society as a whole, this book provides key insight, pictures, and explanations to aid young students in learning about and understanding autism. This book clearly outlines how a student with autism may feel, act, or look. Things such as difficulty communicating and difficulty understanding other people's feelings are discussed. This book also points out that children with autism usually have trouble making friends and therefore gives students strategies that may be helpful in making friends who are autistic. Some recommendations given include remembering to be patient, as well as understanding that sometimes children with autism like to play alone. The book provides a very real portrayal or how a student with autism may function within a classroom and what to expect. Some expectations mentioned include repetitive functions such as rocking in their seat or repeating words as well as the need for routines. I like how this book shows students clear, colorful pictures of students their age with autism, giving students a clear picture of what to expect. I am an educator myself and I would use this book in my classroom if I were teaching young children and had a student with autism to help other students understand the physical and behavioral differences that may come with autism.Read more ›

I got this book with the intention of helping some of my son's friends learn about Autism. It's a great little book. Small and short with great pictures. It gives you the flexibility to talk about and be specific to your own situation. It highlights that differences are ok.
