5.0 out of 5 stars Looking through the window into life with Aspergers/ASD, 21 April 2014
This is a great book, by WillowHope, about living with Asperger's Syndrome (but it can be applied to ASDs in general), mostly undiagnosed and how things in the past make more sense now diagnosed and and has advice and tips for people on the spectrum and their families to help with lots of aspects in life that affect us differently.

It might help a parent recognizing ASD traits in their child, and an older child on the Autistic Spectrum to deal with issues at school and growing up. It will also be useful for other people, like professionals working with people on the Autistic Spectrum, on how to help people. If professionals, particularly from schools, could read this they might change the way they view school pupils with ASD and how to accommodate them in school better. But, in the end, it shows people on the Autistic Spectrum can be successful regardless of failings by the school system, because we are very intelligent, determined and creative like Willow shows in the book.

The book has a really good timeline, so it feels more realistic and it brings it to life. I like to look at pictures and visual things because on the Autistic Spectrum, we are visual people.

It, also, has links to lots of resources for people on the Autistic Spectrum and their families, like forums, websites etc.

When you buy this book, some money is donated to Macmillan cancer charity which will help people living with cancer and help at the end of their life. So, you are helping two different very important sets of people by buying this book. The cause is personal to Willow and her friends.

I bought this game for a seven year old boy who got a Nintendo DSi for Christmas and this was his first game. He is football crazy and LOVES this game! He was able to get to grips with the game quickly and enjoys playing it for hours!
Packaging was good and arrived quickly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic case, 6 Jan 2011
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
I bought this case for a seven year old boy who got a Nintendo DSi console for Christmas. This is a good case for a Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DS Lite console. It has space for three games only. It is practical but we found there are no straps to hold the console in place which seems insecure and does not seem very substanial. I have, since, seen better quality, nicer Nintendo DS cases I would have preferred to buy.
Overall, it is good basic Nintendo DS case and serves it's purpose well.
