About the Book
Psychotherapist and counselor Pat Thomas puts her gentle, yet straightforward approach to work in this new addition to Barron's highly acclaimed A First Look At...Series. This book will help children understand what autism is and how it affects someone who has it. A wonderful catalyst for discussion that will help children to better understand and support autistic classmates or siblings. The story line is simple and easily accessible to younger children, who will learn that exploring the personal feelings around social issues is a first step in dealing with them. Full-color illustrations on every page.

My Take on the Book
If your child has autism or you know a child with autism, this is an excellent book to read to your children so they can understand the challenges a child with autism has in our world.

Pat Thomas has written a story that explains autism beautifully in terms children would understand. Children will be able to relate to the circumstances and events that children take for granted and are more difficult for children with autism.

Today our classrooms have children with many talents and challenges. Your children are part of that classroom and community so for them to understand differences in children is a priority. Anyone who has challenges because they are different need compassion and understanding. It begins with the adults who help children learn about the challenges these children face and to become friends with them in their own way. I believe this book is a great resource to assist with the understanding.
