    understanding crow boy

    Though not stated explicitly, Crow Boy is about an autistic child. He displays all of the classical features; social isolation, adherence to routine, limited ability to learn to speak or write, and a facination with visual stimuli. Also highlighted is the need to teach these children in a one:one setting. 'crow boy' never does speak to the other children, even when older, but he does learn some basic skills, and is appreciated for the talents that he does have. I doubt that even the author realized that he wrote an excellent illustration of the life of an autistic child.

    LIfe lesson

    Chibi means tiny boy that is what they called the boy who no one talked to. None of the other students at school or even the teachers would talk to him. They all made fun of him. Then he got a new teacher that took a lot of interest in him. This gave Chibi one friend in the entire school. Chibi entered the talent show because of the new teacher, Mr. Isobe. Mr. Isobe said, ¿Chibi is going to imitate the voices of crows¿ for his talent. Then Chibi said, ¿Kauuwuatt¿ and began his talent and continues doing many voices of crows. Chibi had learned the calls while walking to school everyday. At graduation Chibi was given an award for perfect attendance for all six years of school. But now everyone called him Crow Boy.
