Twelve Years a Slave
Twelve Years a Slave

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping account of the strength of human spirit, 25 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Must-read. Gripping and horrific. A lesson to us all is contained within Solomon's words. The human spirit is strongest when weakened by the ignorant prejudice of others.

A great starting point for a teacher or teaching assistant with an ASD child in their class and no prior experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars So reassuring, 26 Nov. 2012

No-one can unlock the secrets of a toddlers' mind...this book does the next best thing. It reassures you as a parent that all the food throwing/lip-trembling/sofa climbing/insert any other random action here, is completely normal and all part of your toddler making sense of the big, wide world!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!, 26 Nov. 2012

This review is from: Moonwalker (Kindle Edition)
I was lucky enough to have 'an audience' with the very charismatic Charlie Duke and feared that this written autobiography might be a let down after hearing such an inspiring talk from the man himself. Having completed the book, I am pleased to report that it conveys just as much enthusiasm, humility and pride in his incredible experience as he did when speaking in person.

One cannot help but be awed by this man's achievement - for someone who has walked amongst the stars, Charlie Duke seems a special kind of person with his feet firmly planted on the ground.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great beginners guide, 26 Nov. 2012

A perfect beginners guide to Makaton signs. I ordered it as a Special Needs Co-ordinator in an Infant School working with a increasing number of language delayed ASD pupils. For this purpose it has been very good. Maybe in future a more school centred volume might be useful, but for teaching us the basics it has been great. It has also been really useful to me as a Mummy whose little one is a huge fan of Mr Tumble and Something Special. Now we can keep up with Justin!

Lovely little book. Lots of colourful pictures grouped into categories that Baby will be familiar with. My little one loves it and it has prompted his first 'real' words!
