Nonfiction Picture Book Wednesday-April 9, 2014

My Friend Alyson Beecher at Kid Lit Frenzy hosts weekly link up to share Nonfiction Picture Books. Please visit her amazing website. 

April is Autism Awareness Month.  I posted a list of books to share with children with an autism theme earlier in the month. Click here to read it. 

by Daniel Stefanski
Published by Free Spirit Publishing
48 pages
This book is written by a young man with an autism spectrum diagnosis. In his book Daniel describes possible reasons why people with autism may act differently. He also offers advice on how to interact with a child with autism. Topics include how children with ASD's may struggle with personal space, sensory difficulties and may have intense interests.  
I really like this book because it gives real examples and strategies that kids can use when interacting with a child with autism. Daniel is very honest and writes in a way that students will understand. I would recommend this book for grades 3-6.
