Reviews

"I See Things Differently" is a sensitive, gently illustrated book about helping a child understand autism in a sibling, playmate, or classmate. Using simple language and non threatening pictures of different common actions or manifestations of autistic behavior, "I See Things Differently" helps explain the condition of autism in a factual, forthright, calm manner that is easily understood by young readers. Helping to promote understanding goes along with learning positive interactions patterns and acceptance of other children with autism. Concern for all levels of health pervades the pictures and narrative of "I See Things Differently," an educational text written from a child's viewpoint to increase understanding of aspects of autism. Many additional tips and suggestions for parents and caretakers of children with autism and others are offered at the end in How To Use This Book, along with added titles of Books To Read and Resources for Adults. "I See Things Differently" is an excellent resource for parents, caregivers, teachers, and children who encounter others with autism."
--The Midwest Book Review
"The topic of autism is explored in a way that encourages positive interaction among children, parents, and teachers."
--Special Needs Resource Foundation of San Diego
