I gave this book as a gift to our Director of Special Education and here is what she had to say:

Thank you again for the book. I finally got a chance to read it. It's SO great! I am reading in several classes for "Dr. Suess' Birthday" and that is what I'll read. Celeste Shally is filling a huge gap in materials to explain autism to kids. She is a true pioneer.

Bought this, read it, and donated a copy to my high-functioning autistic son's Kindergarten class. This doesn't just have to be about autistic kids getting bullied. It can be about any kid, and it encourages kids who are uncomfortable with witnessing bullying, to alert a teacher or parent. We have to start early with squelching such behavior.

My son is so high functioning that in structured environments like class, he seems normal. But in free-play situations like recess and lunch that are largely unsupervised, he shows his autisic quirks and gets picked on. When I brought this up to his teacher, she didn't even know it was going on. Even at this age, kids know to wait until the teacher is absent to do it.

As a teacher and mother of an autistic son, I think Celeste's new book, The Bully Blockers is a MUST for all schools to purchase and read to all classes. Bullying is something that harms all children,not just autistic children, and each school should start a Bully Blockers Club!~ great start of a resource for schools...

I bought this book for the health teacher in our school. We have many special needs students and bullying is something we need to control at all times especially in this day and age. The illustrations and words are wonderful. I am ordering this book again for another health teacher.

...in the writing stages and it was obvious Celeste came at this with the passion of a mother. The final product proves it. This is a valuable tool.
