Autism is hard to understand especially for young children. This helps a bit with the most common characteristics. It is hard to express without feeling stereotypical how students with autism might react around classmates.

Good for the peer to understand more about how to get along with the special friends.

The book doesn't mention autism. It is good for the teachers to use in the inclusive classrooms. Good for the lower primary PSHE lessons.

I absolutely LOVE this book! It is a wonderful story to teach children about differences in others and how we should be accepting of others despite their differences. This is a MUST-HAVE book for the classroom. I have not read the other books in this series, but I want to read them!

This book is great for teaching young students about what it means to be compassionate, understanding, and welcoming. This book is good for children's literature and is didactic in nature.
