My youngest sister has just had her first book published. It is called "Lucy's Amazing Friend" and it is a children's book about autism.
“I said hi and he ignored me,” she said.
“Lucy, that’s Daniel. He has autism,” Miss Miller responded.
“What’s autism?” asked Lucy.
From that moment on Lucy works to make friends with Daniel in this bright, upbeat book about autism. Once she succeeds, Lucy becomes determined that the other kids in the class learn to accept Daniel as well. With an estimated 1 in 68 children now falling somewhere on the autism spectrum, Lucy’s Amazing Friend is just the right book to help children understand that we are all different, and while those differences can be challenging, they also make us each special.
You can learn more about the book (and purchase it - no, I don't get any commission) at www.stephanieworkman15.com. I've also put a link to her website on the sidebar of the blog.
