What People are saying about this

Dr. Cindy Golden
I was most impressed with this book by Laura. A Special Friend is a great resource for parents and educators to use when talking to children about those with special needs. It not only includes discussion guides for parents and teachers but this delightful book was actually illustrated by a child with autism. I love it.
—Dr. Cindy Golden (editor, Special Needs Resource Magazine)
Michael Frey
The discussion questions provided for parents and teachers are particularly helpful to begin a discussion and support our children to make a difference in the lives of others. I highly recommend this book for parents and teachers to use with their children.
—Michael Frey Ph.D. (Licensed Child and Adolescent Psychologist)
Liz Klug
Raising the bar in the areas of compassion and understanding among young minds is tremendously important, which is why this book should be on the reading lists of primary grade schoolers everywhere. The beautiful illustrations make it a treat for the eyes, as well!
—Liz Klug (Executive Director, Autism Speaks Chicagoland chapter)

A very insightful and beautifully illustrated book that teaches people of all ages how unique and special we all are. Discussion questions at the end of the book provide teachers and parents with a great tool to open dialogue.

This book completely captures the essence of what needs to be taught to children about their peers with special needs - the fact that they are different in some ways, but not all ways. (And not in the ways that truly matter!) It is a great discussion starter for teachers to use in their classrooms, and is written simply enough to be understood at all levels. What a great resource for compassion and understanding! Kudos, Laura!
