For the younger kids:
- This book covers it all, whether you are big, or small. We are all lovely! LOVELY
The first one was suggested by a developmental pediatricau we saw recenthly for our son, she said age did not matter and we’d benefit from some of what isbeing offred in it. I will share what my husband and I find, we are both reading it.
I have 2 suggestions this month. The first is not related to anything special needs related. It was one of my 2019 goals to do more personal escape reading. Just to get away. I am off to a decent start and in love, with the book, I am reading now.
“The Kent Road Kids Learn A Lesson About Being Different” is the first in a series of inspirational stories that are actually based on true stories. In this book, the character is Living with Autism, specifically, Asperger’s Syndrome and it can be very challenging. John’s physical challenges prevent him from ever scoring the game-winning goal in the street hockey game that he watches from his front porch. John dreams for more and in this charming story, you are taken on a journey to see how John realizes his dream of being part of the team in a light-hearted and clever way. In a world where being different can be very isolating, the Kent Road Kids come together to include John and to embrace and celebrate his differences.
This book has a great message for all of us! What we tell ourselves matters! This is just as true for kids as it is for adults.
