my review...

I hate to repeat a lot of my review on another of this author’s books. This is the 2nd book I’ve read from the “Let’s Talk” series. I hate to repeat, but I will because so many things I said before are true here. This is not just a book for kids with autism to read about experiences. It’s a book for kids to understand kids with autism. This is not a deep psychological book; it’s a kid’s book. As I said in the other review, I’m not sure there is even a way to explain such a complex illness. But this is a normal book. It has kids making fun of others which sometimes young kids do until someone teaches them it’s wrong. It has truly good kids protecting those who need it most. It has parents handling everything in a calm and cool manner, and it’s fun too. It has great illustrations, and it could be a source of discussion and learning for a hugely wide age range.

Most important thing is that Lisa Jacovsky write more books!
