Product description


A nice choice for explaining AS to young siblings or classmates, gets some serious business done in a non-threatening, unchallenging way. If the reader in question loves cats, all the better, because there are some real cuties in here. Sometimes simplicity is a virtue, and a kindly package like this on can be invaluable in providing enlightenment in others and empowerment to your child. Author: Terri Mauro, About.com

All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome is a great addition for the coffeetable for any residence. I would also suggest this for therapist, doctor and school offices. The audience will gain insights through the delightful photographs of cats and kittens in various forms of play and vivid times of distress, alone time and funny mishaps along the way. Author: BellaOnline Reviews

A warm and understanding approach to the syndrome and those people affected by it. Each page has a beautiful glossy photograph of an endearing kitten or cat doing something a child with Asperger Syndrome might do, such as taking a risk with no idea of the danger he might get into. Accompanying each photo is a short sentence or phrase, explaining how such a child may feel, think or act under certain circumstances.

It is a heart-warming and encouraging book and ideal for anybody who cares for an Asperger child, although I would recommend everybody to read it at least once (I have now read it four times), as it helps those of us who are ignorant of this condition to understand it more fully.

I found this book to be both poignant and humorous, without being patronising. I believe the author has aimed to educate and inform but without overwhelming the reader with statistics or technical jargon. In my opinion she has achieved this aim.

Author: The National Child Minding Association

I recommend the children's book called All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome, which was writtern by Kathy Hoopmann. This 72 page Asperger Syndrome (AS) children's book uses text and more than 70 photos of kitty cats to illustrate how these furry and unpredictable creatures reflect AS tendencies and traits. As a person with AS and who owns a cat, I can relate to the premise of the book. Author: Roy A. Barnes, Associatedcontent.com

'Illuminated with delightful colour photographs it compares-touchingly and humorously - the characteristics shared by cats and those with Asperger's. An ideal introduction to the world of Asperg. It uses lovely photographs of cats to outline many characteristics of Aspergers, and could be really useful resource to help children(and adults) who don't have Asperger Syndrome to understand the experience of those who do'. Author: Learning Support

In a heartwarming, playful and endearing way, the author has created a wonderful book that promotes understanding of difference, is positive and hopeful for all. I can't recommend this book enough for parents and children alike, who will get a lot of pleasure reading it together and looking at the pictures. Left on the coffee table for friends and relatives to read would be a great way of increasing their understanding too. Author: Connected

In her 2006 picture book, Australian author Kathy Hoopmann uses a familiar and beloved subject for many children - cats - to explain and human neurological condition. Some behaviour of children with Asperger's might seem unusual to others their age, but Hoopmann patiently demystifies it. Imagine: an enjoyable didactic book. It's a rare combination, but this creative approach pulls it off. Author: Chicken Spaghetti Blog

My nine year old Grand-daughter Emma has just been diagnosed with Autism, but to my knowledge has never heard the word Aspergers. I thought that I would read the book to her. After listening up to page 13, she said, "This is a book about my problems not a cats problem at all." I progressed through the book showing her the pictures, which she found highly amusing, and through provoking making comments all along. I myself though that the book should be one that is on all schools bookshelves to introduce to teachers and children into the world of `different' children who have problems that need careful handling. Author: Linchpin Journal

The one thing I notice most about cats, and respect them for, is their independence. It's a funny thing because this is also what I notice about my Aspie friends. In fact, I see this in my own life as well. It's a unique quality that sets us apart from most other humans. Just like cats are not like dogs. I mean we wouldn't want them to be, would we? Kathy's humorous book that highlights the unique qualities of individuals with Asperger's has us "down to a T". Author: Wendy Lawson

They are independent, adventurous and bright but can often leave you utterly bewildered - a description that will have cat-lovers everywhere nodding in agreement. It will also ring a bell for those with friends with Asperger Syndrome. Through the harmony of words and photos, Hoopman's clever sense of humour opens up the world of Asperger to reveal the potential and the individuality that is so often misunderstood. Author: Mychild
