This book is one of the best that I've read to help siblings and friends of children with autism to understand the various behaviors and oddities that autistic children can exhibit due to their autism. It helps convey the message that although they are different, autistic children are very much like any other children, and that those who take the time to understand them will be greatly rewarded by their efforts. I plan to let many of our family friends borrow this book so they can read it to their children and hopefully they will better understand my son.
