    A wonderfully written, uplifting story for all audiences

    I loved this book. "Following Ezra" is a wonderful, uplifting story about the evolution of one parent's relationship with his autistic son. As author Tom Fields-Meyer notes, it's the book he would have wanted to read when he learned his son Ezra had autism. But this book is much more than that -- it's the book all parents should read when they learn they are becoming parents. With love, humor and a true desire to let Ezra lead him, Fields-Meyer teaches us all that what our children need most is parents who love and appreciate them no matter what challenges they may face. I found myself laughing out loud on one page and shedding a tear the next as the author traces the triumphs, disappointments and revelations that come with raising a boy like Ezra.

    Inspiration

    As a new parent, i can relate to Tom's love for his child, his pride in Ezra's accomplishments. As a parent with a typical child, I don't have the experiences and struggles of raising an autistic child as the author articulates so well. This is a book I haven't put down. We can all learn from Tom's patience, and from the incredible young man who is Ezra.

    AMAZING!

    My daughter has autism, and I've been trying to find ways to cope with it... His book is a complete 180 from all other books about it. An inspiration for any parent!

    A must read for anyone with a child on the spectrum

    I devoured this honest, sometimes humorous and very real story. Having a son on the spectrum who is just 5 now, I can relate to a lot of the content in this book. My husband and I both read it and it changed our view on how we should be handling our own son. Our boy has some very similar personality traits to Ezra and we found ourselves laughing out loud. Loved it. Again, loved it.
