I got this for my son's Cub Scout Pack to explain to them why my son is the way he is. I did not feel this added anything to the conversation. I found there were better books out there like My Friend with Autism or The Autism Acceptance Book.

Another thing was that this book takes place in Ireland and they use different words there than we do here and my son didn't understand them.

The only nice thing about the book was the illustrations. They were very nicely drawn.

Such a cute and well written book. I've used it as a school counselor to go into a class with a kiddo that has Autism and used it to help his peers understand him better. I appreciate this book and will be using it as a resource over and over.

This was a great book. I bought it for my10 year old niece who did not understand what it was like for a child who had Autism. She said that it really helped her to understand why my son did alloy of the things that he did and she would be more patient with him.

I bought 5 books off amazon the sane day, all were books for how to help a child understand autism, I was SOOOOO upset when I received the others.....they were horrible.... weren't helpfully at all. I immidialtly wrote amazon & returning ... when this book arrived I was sadly just assuming the worst so I open the book up and started reading much to my surprise this was actually an amazing book and actually told autism very well much like all the other books that I had bought so I can't stress enough if you're going to get a book get this one!!! Don't make my mistake!!!!

I read this to my austic son's class every fall (K and 1st grade so far). Its a great introduction for kids who know someone with autism, but might not know how to befriend them. Love it! My son has been embraced by his class every year and I think this helped start things off right.

Purchased for a 7 year old with ASD. He could relate to the character when reading the book, which was nice. Love this book.

The book was too simple. It didn't have enough information about autism and was written for really young children. I'm looking for something I can share with a 9 year old and this wasn't it.
