As an elementary school teacher I find it hard to cover everything I believe my students should learn, especially when it comes to teaching them about some of the challenges that their fellow students may have. 'The Autism Acceptance Book' takes all of the mystery out of this otherwise confusing challenge that children and adults alike tend to know less about than they think. I personally learned a lot about autism from how easily and approachably Ellen Sabin the author has written this text. As an elementary teacher I strongly suggest it as a part of your curriculum, and it would also work very well between parent and child, you'll be surprised at what you both learn!

Being a parent of an autistic child, I love this book. It not only embraces the world of the autistic child, but explains it in a way that children can understand what it can be like to be autistic. The colors are bright and vibrant, and the flow is just right. I have been recommending this book to people in my community, and they share my feelings. Thank you for developing such a wonderful concept.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This is a wonderful, engaging, valuable book- thoughtful without being preachy, direct while being engaging and conversational. I would highly recommend this book as a gift and guide to any child who is coming into contact with people with autism for the first time (or anything that marks someone as different than their young peers). The book strikes, in my view, just the right tone to give a young person insight into the needs and differences of a person with autism, without resorting to or promoting condescension or pity toward people with differences.Was this review helpful?
