"I was delighted to have Ellen participate in our Meet the Author event, as part of the United Nations' first ever World Autism Awareness Day. UN staff, diplomats and visitors were in attendance to hear Ellen's heartfelt remarks about teaching kids to be kind and accepting of their peers with autism. I sincerely hope her book gets spread around the world; it carries a universal message full of hope and compassion." -- Juan Carlos Brandt, Chief, Advocacy and Special Events, United Nation
"This book is a powerful tool for ensuring that our schools and classrooms are a positive place for children with special needs. It helps implement tenets of the Individuals with Disability Education Act and allows children to have fun while softening the stigma of autism." -- Rod Paige, former United States Secretary of Education
"The quality of life of children with autism can be enhanced when the people in their lives better understand them. This book does a tremendous job of helping children form an idea of what it is like to be autistic and how their patience and understanding can help those who are. I hope it is shared far and wide." -- Suzanne Wright, Co-founder, Autism Speaks
From the Publisher
This book is much more than a book that teaches children about autism. It uses informative narrative and engaging activities to help them develop understanding, compassion, and appreciation for people different from themselves. It lets them use their imagination and journal exercises to more fully comprehend some of the challenges people with autism might face. It also empowers children by helping them understand the power of their actions and how they can be a good friend to others.
This book is one in a refreshing and unique series by author Ellen Sabin. Her other books include The Giving Book: Open the Door to a Lifetime of Giving; The Hero Book: Learning Lessons From the People You Admire; The Healthy Body Book: Caring for the Coolest Machine You'll Ever Own; The Greening Book: Being a Friend to Planet Earth; The Nickels, Dimes, and Dollars Book: A Wise Kid's Guide to Money Matters, and a sequel to this book which covers other special needs--- The Special Needs Acceptance Book.
The Publisher, Watering Can Press, offer FREE teacher's guides on the web site that support using these books in classroom settings.

I read it with him and on just about every single page he said, "that's just like me" or "I do that." This book was very helpful for my son whose been telling me since he was 3 that he was different than other children.
I left the book out for him to read again if he wanted. The next morning I found him reading it and he said to me, "Mom, I think we need to buy copies of this book for my friends to help them understand me better." And that's exactly what we did. It's perfect for elementary aged children.
In addition to his friends I have purchased a copy for all of his teachers and have downloaded the teacher's guide and emailed that to them as well. It has wonderful lesson plans that go with the book.
I also bought a copy for my grandmother to help her understand Autism.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who has a child with Autism in their life.
