Format: Paperback
I got this for my 5 year old daughter who's 4 year old brother has high functioning autism. I found it mainly well written in relation to language, but missing important bits like how he sometimes lashes out, has difficultty sharing, and seems to get away with more. Overall although all autistic children are different, it seemed to be missing big common aspects of behaviour which I felt needed to be included for the book to be meaningful or useful. It is too specifically written on the child it was based on for it to be generalised and helpful to different children. I would prefer to recommend the book 'My brother is different' by the National Autistic Society which my daughter responded really well to and asks for it to be read again and again My Brother is Different: A Book for Young Children Who Have a Brother or Sister with Autism.

Overall I'd say anyone thinking of buying this needs to see a copy first to see if it is relevant. For me it was a waste of money.

The best book I've found about Autism! 24 Jan. 2008
By M. Mason - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is truly the best book to explain Autism to a child or a sibling of an Autistic child. The text is easy to understand and relate to as a child and the pictures are amazing. I have a son with Autism and this book helped to explain to my younger son without Autism why his brother does some of the things that he does. I am also a 3rd grade teacher and I have read the book to my class and they really enjoyed it and related to the book. We had lots of great discussions and they have a much better understanding of Autism. I also love the way that the author has given suggestions in the back of the book to how you can personalize this book for your own loved one with Autism. I would recommend this book to anyone that needs an easy to understand book about Autism.

Another must have book 15 Feb. 2013
By Supermom - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book rocks! It helped discuss/explain to our child about his Autism and why he does the things he does. My typical child was able also understand more clearly why his sibling does things. It's makes is more special when it's factual information, including the photos. My child on the spectrum likes the book more than my typical child. It also it a great book to share at your child's school, give to family members, etc.

Great for helping children to understand autism! 3 April 2006
By S. Gotwalt - Published on
Format: Paperback
I just read this book and it is a great way to explain the characteristics of autism to young children. Autism is a very complex subject and it's very hard to bring it down to a child's level. My son has autism and has many of the traits mentioned in this book. The author explains them all very well. The author gives suggestions on how to personalize the story for other families/children. This is great - then you can take your personalized story to your church, school or even young members of your family to help them to understand autism.

Wonderful way to explain autism to children 2 April 2013
By Therese Murphy - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Can't wait to begin writing my own version of this book from a cousins viewpoint. The author gives permission to use her ideas for your child with autism. My grandson is autistic and I purchased this book for his younger brother and cousins. His same age cousin really enjoyed reading the book and found similarities, he wants me to write the book and he wants to take it to his cousins school to read to the class. Both boys are seven years old and in the 2 nd grade. Thanks to the author for writing this book and allowing others to adapt it to their child.

My 5 year old loves this book 15 April 2014
By A. Brewer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My 5 year old has an older brother with autism. I hesitated buying this book because her brother is older. My son does not do all the things the brother does in the story, my daughter still thinks it's cool. She shared it with her class at school during World Autism Awareness Week as well as with her sibling group from our local Autism support group. The pictures are great and real (and both my kids get a kick out of the little boy in his underwear). I especially like the last part that encourages you to make your own book.
