Lucy doesn't understand why the new boy in Miss Reed's class doesn't like her.

"I said hi and he ignored me," she said.
"Lucy, that's Daniel. He has autism," Miss Miller responded.

People With Challenges is a unit of study in our 4th grade classes. Therefore, I was very pleased with the subject and quality of the story Lucy's Amazing Friend. The book doesn't preach but simply shows how an autistic child can be included in various activities. As the school librarian I have already added it to my collection.
