Harper introduces Emma to all her friends and teaches them how to communicate with her. Harper and Emma become the center of their circle of friends and begin to have many more adventures together...


my review...

Really has something for all kids. It’s multi-cultural. It explains autism to a child. I’m not suggesting it explains autism in full. No one in the world could ever explain such a difficult thing to handle and understand. It’s just a particularly good kids book about people being different in many ways and that different isn’t bad. I learned a couple of things myself. Did not think of autistic children responding to “yes and no”cards to enable speech. Learn something every day, don’t you? Would recommend to almost any child of an age that you can read to and any child of reading age. A great book for discussion purposes. A great book for family discussion.
