I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affects my opinion.
I downloaded this book, because of my son's diagnosis of autism. I have been looking for a book I could share with my five year old daughter to help explain what it is my son goes through on a daily basis.
This book definitely hit the high points and did it in a great way -- on one page we get a line drawing with a short illustrated comment on how "Tom" is feeling with the situation. On another we get a bit more in depth. I think this will appeal to many different age groups this way.
I thought the book could have been packaged better -- the drawings and the cover were simplistic and probably wouldn't sell as easily as a sleekly illustrated and designed book would. However, this is definitely a great resource for parents to share with siblings or friends of children with autism. Therapists and teachers (especially those who do inclusion) could also use this as a valuable resource.
