"The quality of life of children with autism can be enhanced when the people in their lives better understand them.

The book provoked wonderful questions from the kids and referencing the book I was able to give understandable answers.
Even though we live with autism, it helped my third grader to better understand his brother. It is well written, well layed out and simple to follow. I'll be taking it to my daughter's pre-k classroom soon. It shows children that differences aren't scarry. They are just different.
I highly recommend this book.
