Read an Excerpt

MOM AND DAD FIND OUT KEVIN HAS AUTISM

Something was very wrong my parents knew.
Acting normal Kevin didn't do.
Like other children he didn't play,
He was five and words he still didn't say.
Mom and Dad heard about autism and Kevin had it, was very true.
What was our family now to do?

This poetry book explains Autism in a way that made sense to me. I also really enjoyed the poetry and OH, the drawings were GREAT! I feel that this book is important because it would help people understand those who have Autism and then they would know how to make them happy. I really like the way Mr. Carlson writes. I think all kids should read this book and I plan to tell all my friends about it. Nathaniel Age 10
