This wonderful book is an ideal tool for teaching children about autism and life as a child with autism.
Booktrust’s ‘Bookmark’ Book of the Month August 2019
‘Charmingly brought to life with exuberant illustrations by Hannah Rounding, this is a book which shares valuable autism-related experience, such as how certain activities may stimulate and why different textures can appeal. Above all, it is a beautiful book, rich in its universal sense of childhood fun and friendship, as we witness two children’s affection for each other, their classmates and their families.’ Booktrust
‘This is a story filled with happiness. A welcome addition to your storytime bookshelf and simply perfect for building understanding of difference; which, if we’re paying attention, we will notice may not be quite so different after all. A marvelous, wonderful book!’ Mary Esther Judy, Fallen Star Stories
