A simple, heartfelt story that follows the life of a child with autism through his imaginative journey as he seeks to be accepted, loved and celebrated for his strengths and abilities. Despite the qualities that make children on the autism spectrum exceptional, they all have hopes, dreams and feelings of belonging that all children desire. This book is a powerful reminder that with a little help from each of us, children with autism can fulfill their dreams.
This cute picture book lets us take a peak inside the marvelous and pure world of a little boy as he tell us everything he does "in his world". Like any other kid, he envisions a world where he can play with other kids, express himself, eat his favorite snacks, dream or just simply say "good night". The thing is, he has autism. When I got to that part, I understood what makes this book special; it is as simple as any other picture book, with a rhyming sentence in every page, but it has a strong message to deliver: "autistic kids have all those dreams, desires and feelings proper of any kid their age, but they need some help from us to achieve them". This is perfectly expressed in very few pages and its simplicity helps to create stronger impact.
